Grantham man explains why he has Margaret Thatcher tattooed on his leg

A tattoo artist from Lady Thatcher's hometown Grantham has paid a life-long tribute to the 'Iron Lady' by having her head tattooed on his leg.

Louis Maier aged 32 wanted to have the six-inch work of art on his right calf to honour her.

The unusual design features Baroness Thatcher's head sitting on an ice cream cone complete with a flake.
