Key pays tribute to 'strong' Thatcher

Tuesday 9 Apr 2013 7:00 a.m.

Prime Minister John Key, currently in China, has paid his respects to Margaret Thatcher.

The former UK prime minister died overnight after suffering a stroke.

He said it was a sad day for Great Britain, and described Lady Thatcher as a "fiercely determined woman".

"The passing of Margaret Thatcher is obviously a very sad day for her family and for Great Britain," says Mr Key.

"She will be remembered as a very strong and determined leader that faced some real challenges – obviously the conflict with the Falklands, the conflict with the IRA and tremendous economic challenges that Great Britain faced."

Lady Thatcher was 87.
