Cambridge: Miliband On Thatcher

The Labour Leader has told Heart he hopes Baroness Thatcher's funeral 'passes without incident'.

It is due to take place in London on Wednesday.

The Metropolitan Police have described the surrounding security operation as the biggest since London 2012.

Speaking to Heart in Cambridge today (Monday), Ed Miliband said: "I thought it was right as Leader of the Labour party in the House of Commons, and in all my other comments, to pay my respects to Lady Thatcher even if I disagreed with what she stood for.

That's what I'll be doing obviously at the funeral on Wednesday.

I hope the funeral does pass off without incident."

Around 2,000 guests, including Peterborough Conservative MP Stewart Jackson, have been invited to the funeral of Baroness Thatcher.

A military procession beforehand will involve around 700 armed forces personnel.
