In Brixton, demonstrators have gathered to 'celebrate' Baroness Thatcher's death and the lettering of the Ritzy Cinema has been rearranged to say "Margret Thatchers dead".
The south London district was the scene of fierce rioting during the Thatcher years blamed on deep social divisions, racial tensions and unemployment.
In the aftermath of the 1981 Brixton riots, the prime minister was criticised for what some saw as a lack of understanding or denial of the causes of the disturbance, after comments such as:
"Nothing, but nothing, justifies what happened.
"Money cannot buy either trust or racial harmony."
