'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."

Remembering a life lost 30 years ago

It's thirty years to the day since the Sir Galahad was bombed in the Falklands War.

Thirty two Welsh Guardsmen were killed in the army's biggest single loss of life since the Second World War.

One of those who died was David Williams from Holyhead. He was just 20 when he lost his life.

Today his family, friends and former comrades attended a service of remembrance in his home town.
