(LONDON DAILY MAIL) Hundreds took to the streets as macabre ‘Thatcher death parties’ were held late across the country last night, organised by critics of the ‘Iron Lady.’

In Bristol, seven police officers were injured – one seriously – as violence erupted at a street party of 200 people and officers were pelted with bottles, cans and rubbish.

Riot police were deployed in Brixton, south London, as the crowds, which had been drinking since 5pm, started to become more aggressive, while in Liverpool flares and fireworks were set off outside Lime Street Station.
