Susan Chapman and her son Daniel from Yorkshire travelled down to London and camped out overnight to watch Margaret Thatcher's funeral.
Finchlyey Conservative Party members Ben Harris Quinney and Shawn Dias told ITV News the loss of Thatcher was "huge" for both the party and the country. Speaking to ITV London in the City earlier Shawn Dias said:
"We will never have the never be able to have the momentum that we had with Baroness Thatcher. She was a unique politician and a unique woman and we have lost someone huge."
One of the protesters who booed the coffin of Baroness Thatcher earlier today told ITV News he was protesting to express his dismay at her policies during her time at government. He said:
"I have no regard for that women. She put people out of work, she closed productive mines, and she put brother against brother."
Admirers of Margaret Thatcher were in central London today for a range of reasons.
"She was a brilliant woman, a wonderful prime minister," said Gwenda Wilkie.
"She dedicated her whole life to serving her country," said Jacosia Wainwright.
Twenty-one-year-old Lizzie Shepherd, wearing a Conservative Party rosette, told ITV News that Baroness Thatcher was "an idol, a role model, and the reason I'm involved in politics today."
She said she admired Baroness Thatcher's "strength, and the fact that she's completely and utterly fearless."
ITV News Reporter Nina Nannar spoke to a man who arrived in London at half past six this morning to line the streets of Thatcher's funeral procession route. He said:
"We have just come to pay our respects to a great leader that we had in this country... I fully expected the crowds."
Conservative MP Ken Clarke hit out at the "childish" protests against Margaret Thatcher today, dismissing the protesters as "adolescents making silly points."
He also defended her ceremonial funeral, telling Sky News:
Protesters in Ludgate Circus near St Paul's cathedral booed and jeered as Thatcher's funeral procession made its way past. Many chanted: "Waste of money" whilst war veterans on the other side of the street applauded and cheered.
