Gallery: How the front pages covered Margaret Thatcher's death


Tuesday 09 April 2013 17:13 BST

The front pages of all UK national newspapers this morning led with yesterday's news of the death of former prime minister Baroness Thatcher.

Coverage varied across the political spectrum and from the the factual - 'Maggie dead in bed at Ritz' (The Sun) - through the sentimental - 'The woman who saved Britain' (Daily Mail) - to the arguably crass and celebratory - 'Rejoice' (Socialist Worker).

Most carried large photographs of the iconic former leader's face.

The Independent's front page featured a black and white picture of Baroness Thatcher with the headline 'The woman who changed everything' and the strapline 'Margaret Thatcher 1925-2013' above our red masthead.
