The coffin of former British prime minister Margaret Thatcher was taken from a chapel at the Houses of Parliament to begin its journey to her funeral on Wednesday.

The coffin, draped in the Union Jack, was carried into a hearse to be driven to another chapel where it will be transferred to a horse-drawn carriage for the procession to St Paul's Cathedral.
