There were angry scenes and five arrests in Liverpool last night after the funeral of Baroness Thatcher. Hundreds of protestors gathered outside St George's Hall. Some of their chants referred to the 96 victims of Hillsborough. An effigy of the Baroness was later set on fire
Hundreds of protestors gathered in Liverpool this evening following the funeral of Baroness Thatcher.
They lined the steps of St George's Hall waving banner and flags.
An effigy of the Baroness was later set on fire. Police lined the streets but the protest passed off relatively peacefully.
As thousands of people lined the streets of London to remember Margaret Thatcher, here her funeral was a matter of more controversy.
Parts of Liverpool fell silent - not in memory of Baroness Thatcher but because the council had turned off public televisions showing the ceremony.
While many councils in the North West flew their Union flags at half mast, Liverpool Council chose not to.
And plans for a party in the city also drew criticism.

A flag flies at half-mast out of respect for Baroness Thatcher outside Cheshire West and Chester HQ in Chester.
