Ex-Met commander reassures public funeral will be safe

Former Met police commander Bob Milton told Daybreak that it would be highly unlikely someone would attempt a terrorist attack on Margaret Thatcher's funeral today.

More than four thousand police officers have been drafted in for the funeral, amid fears of demonstrations and protests.

The measures that we can put in place will make it very difficult for someone to try and disrupt this funeral today and attack the funeral, and that's important for the public to understand.

– Bob Milton, former Met police commander
