Lady Flo Dies aged 97

Former senator Lady Florence Bjelke-Petersen has died at 97.
Lady Bjelke-Petersen was the wife of Queensland's longest-serving premier, Sir Joh Bjelke-Petersen.
"Lady Flo", as she was fondly known, was Queensland's first lady for nearly 20 years.
As the grandmother of politics in the state, she was more famous for her pumpkin scones than her senate career.
