HUNDREDS of people joined a party to "celebrate" the death of Baroness Thatcher in Glasgow's George Square this evening.
Crowds gathered from 5pm despite a statement from Glasgow City Council discouraging anyone from attending the event which was organised over social media.
A crowd of two or three hundred people assembled in the square where in 1989 protests to the introduction of Thatcher's poll tax took place.
Members of various organisations including the Anti-Bedroom Tax Federation, the Communist Party, the Socialist Party, the Socialist Working Party, the International Socialist Group, were joined by members of the public to mark the occasion.
