The union flag will be flown at half mast from Wakefield Town Hall to mark the funeral of Baroness Thatcher next Wednesday.

Britain’s Flag Protocol dictates that union flags should be lowered to half mast on the funeral days of former prime ministers, as well as First Ministers and members of the Royal family.

Baroness Thatcher, who was the country’s first and only woman prime minister, died yesterday morning following a stroke.
