Morecambe was represented at the funeral of Baroness Thatcher earlier today.

The Archbishop Emeritus Patrick Kelly, who was born in the town, led the congregation in prayers during the service at St Paul’s Cathedral.

David Morris, the MP for Morecambe who also attended, said: “The service was a deeply moving occasion.

“It was nice to see all the Prime Ministers who have served since Baroness Thatcher together with so many foreign dignitaries and members of the Armed Forces who once again were a credit to our nation. “The funeral was a fitting tribute to a truly great leader whose legacy will outlive us all.”
