Hurd: 'Thatcher will take her place in British history'

Former member of Margaret Thatcher's Cabinet Lord Douglas Hurd has spoken of his fondest memory of the Conservative prime minister being during a trip to Paris while she was fighting for her political life against Michael Heseltine.

"She swept in to the bug Galerie de Glace at Versaille and she carried herself like a queen. She was amazing - showed all the courage which I will always remember her for."

Speaking about Baroness Thatcher's legacy Lord Hurd said:

"It will take some time for people to fit her in to British history...she'll find her place in history."
