So far, the police have made five arrests on suspicion of being drunk and disorderly or for inflicting grievous bodily harm.
Meanwhile, results from an opinion poll released tonight suggest that more than half of voters believe Thatcher's ceremonial funeral should not be funded by taxpayers' money.
A survey by market research agency ComRes found that 25 per cent of people thought the funeral should be paid for out of public funds while 60 per cent were opposed.
Dancers up on the front of the National Gallery being cheered by crowds below. The two dancers leapt from the National Gallery wall into the crowd some 20ft below. Extreme crowd surfing! Police acted to push the crowd further from the bottom of the wall to stop anyone else taking the same leap.
Observer chief reporter Tracey McVeigh sends this update from Trafalgar Square:
Around 1,700 protesters in a rainy Trafalgar Square. Minor skirmish with police already at the base of Nelson's Column when police attempted to close down and remove a small sound system being run by protestors. Angry screams of vintage anti-police chants accusing them of being "maggie's fascists". Drummers competing with police helicopter. Pubs around the square packed with protesters avoiding the rain.

Does it seem like every time a conservative icon dies, liberals celebrate in their own way by, well, just being liberals? Making fools of themselves, causing public disturbances, and general disrespect for the dead? I still remember their glee and overall disgusting behavior following the death of Andrew Breitbart. When Jerry Falwell died, someone who had done nothing more than preach God’s word and morality, they showed who they were by their uncontrolled giddiness over it.
The current filthy state of our culture - what happens when we give into homosexuals, abortionists, socialists, feminists etc: all cut from the same cloth.
Time for some Pinochet action methinks.
