Baroness Thatcher home from hospital

Baroness Thatcher returned home from hospital today more than two weeks after breaking her arm in a fall.

The former Prime Minister, dressed in a pink cardigan, pink top and cream-coloured skirt, with her left arm apparently in a sling, waved at reporters and smiled on the doorstep of her central London home.

Lady Thatcher, who said nothing to reporters, made the 60-second appearance before returning into her home aided by a female helper.
