The flags outside the Scottish Parliament building are flying at half mast this morning to mark the funeral of Margaret Thatcher.

Scotland's First Minister Alex Salmond is in Westminster to attend the ceremony.

The Scottish Conservative leader, Ruth Davidson, will also be among more than 2,000 guests at St Paul's Cathedral.

A debate on Margaret Thatcher's legacy which was due to be held at Holyrood today, was rescheduled for tomorrow after the Scottish Conservatives branded the timing "provocative and insensitive".
