Conservative peer Lord Tebbit said his late wife Margaret died without ever forgiving the IRA terrorists who ruined her life.

Lady Tebbit passed away at the couple's Suffolk home in the early hours of Saturday morning - 36 years after being left paralysed from the neck down by the bombing of the Grand Hotel in Brighton.

Her grieving husband told the Belfast Telegraph he would miss the laughter they shared together during 64 years of marriage.
