Young voices: Four girls hold banners reading 'Rejoice! Rejoice' during a celebration of the death of Baroness Thatcher in Brixton, south London
It raised security concerns about next week’s funeral, with increasing fears that militant groups, anti-austerity protesters or even dissident Irish Republicans might seek to disrupt the occasion.
One police source said senior officers had initially been ‘quite relaxed’  about the operation to protect Wednesday’s farewell to the former prime minister, but had hardened their view as disorder broke out.
The funeral at St Paul’s Cathedral now looks likely to present a security challenge unparalleled since the funerals of Diana, Princess of Wales in 1997 and Sir Winston Churchill in 1965.

In other developments:
The Queen announced she would attend the funeral, effectively elevating it to a state occasion;
Parliament prepared for today’s highly unusual recall from its Easter break to allow MPs to pay tribute;
Senior MPs called for Port Stanley in the Falkland Islands to be renamed Port Margaret and a statue to be erected in Trafalgar Square in her honour;
Lady Thatcher’s son Sir Mark and daughter Carol arrived in Britain to prepare for their mother’s farewell.
While many senior politicians on all sides acknowledged Lady Thatcher’s towering legacy, some of her old foes were unable to demonstrate respect for her in death.
