Tributes paid to statesman Lord Carrington after his death aged 99

Former prime ministers were among those paying tribute to statesman and war hero Lord Carrington of Upton, who has died at the age of 99. The last surviving member of Sir Winston Churchill's post-war government, Peter Carrington famously resigned as Margaret Thatcher's Foreign Secretary in 1982 after taking responsibility for the Argentinian invasion of the Falkland Islands. He had previously chaired the Lancaster House talks in 1979 which led to the establishment of the state of Zimbabwe, and later served as secretary-general of Nato from 1984-88.
