Margaret Thatcher dies - Twitter reaction as CNN blunders with Jimmy Savile picture and Guido Fawkes closes for a day
It has also been suggested – but not confirmed – that the BBC made a typo in an article and suggested that Thatcher died following a ‘strike’.

Guido Fawkes has announced that he is shutting the site for the day as a mark of respect.
