'People will remember the lack of dignity shown'

More than 2,300 guests will attend Margaret Thatcher's funeral today, including 50 Falklands Veterans.

Speaking to Daybreak, Falklands veteran Simon Weston said: "Whatever else goes on and whatever people want to say about today somebody's died."

He added, "we're talking about somebody who is dead, it's not going to affect her a single jot, all people will remember is the lack of dignity that we have shown."
