Royal Marines bandsmen led the funeral procession for Margaret Thatcher in London today.

The 35-strong Band of HM Royal Marines Portsmouth led the cortege with 35 of their colleagues from The Band of HM Royal Marines Collingwood.

The band played funeral marches by Chopin, Beethoven and Mendelssohn, while guns were fired every minute from the Tower of London.
