The Community Of Easington Colliery On The Day Of Former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher's Ceremonial Funeral In London

EASINGTON, ENGLAND - APRIL 17: A memorial plaque to the colliery disaster of May 1951 that killed 83 people in an explosion is part of the mining heritage still visible on April 17, 2013 in Easington, England. Former miners and their families are today holding a commemoration party for the closure of the pit at Easington Colliery; coinciding with the ceremonial funeral for Baroness Thatcher, who took on the mining union during the miners' strike which ultimately led to the closure of the mines and the loss of jobs. Dignitaries from around the world today join Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh as the United Kingdom pays tribute to former Prime Minster Baroness Thatcher during a Ceremonial funeral with military honours at St Paul's Cathedral. Lady Thatcher, who died last week, was the first British female Prime Minister and served from 1979 to 1990. (Photo by Ian Forsyth/Getty Images)
