A COFFIN will be set alight today in a South Yorkshire village in a mock ‘funeral’ for Lady Thatcher.

A procession will leave the Comrades Club on Goldthorpe High Street, stopping at the Rust Dudley before heading to the Reform Club.

The event is being held by people who opposed the former Prime Minister’s policies to co-incide with the real funeral in London.

Lady Thatcher’s funeral service takes place at 11am this morning at St Paul’s Cathedral in London.
