Margaret Thatcher's mixed legacy

As tributes pour in from leaders from right across the world, the former UK PM remains a divisive figure even in death.

    Supporters of late British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher say she will be remembered for revolutionising Britain's financial sector and helping millions get on the property ladder.

    Yet in some parts of the country, her death has been marked by street parties and celebrations.

    In this segment, Al Jazeera's Paul Brennan reports on the death that prompted tributes from leaders from right across the world while Laurence Lee takes a look now at how Thatcher remains such a divisive figure, even in death.
