Miners outside an event held in Easington in County Durham said they are celebrating the death of Margaret Thatcher. An event was planned on this day even before the death of the former Prime Minister, marking 20 years since the pit closed.
However, one man who was arriving at the event said it was now "100% celebration for Thatcher."
He added: "Thatcher treated us with bad taste, closed all our mines, decimated our villages, and stopped our youth getting jobs."
