Recently, news about Buckingham Palace is going viral on the Internet. The news about the arrest in front of palaces has gained public interest. In this article we are going to give all the information about the arrest carried out in front of the palaces. Before that, let’s get to know a bit about the palaces. Buckingham Palace is a royal home in London and the administrative seat of the monarch of the United Kingdom. The palace, which is located in the City of Westminster, is often at the center of state occasions and royal hospitality. It has served as a focal point for the British people in times of celebration and national sadness.
Man arrested at Buckingham Palace
According to police, a man was arrested outside Buckingham Palace after throwing suspicious shotgun shells on the Palace grounds. Following the incident, which occurred at around 19:00 BST on Tuesday, a cordon was erected and a controlled explosion was carried out. The man was taken into custody on suspicion of having an offensive weapon. There have been no reports of injuries. The incident is not currently being investigated as a terrorist incident. The evening rehearsals for the Coronation on Saturday went off without a hitch. According to police, the individual was searched and a knife was discovered, but he was not carrying a gun.
He was also found to be in possession of a suspicious bag, according to authorities, and a controlled explosion was carried out out of an abundance of caution after specialist examination. The incident is known to be being handled as a single mental health issue. The arrest comes just four days before the King’s Coronation, which will be attended by world leaders and other royals from around the world. Security Minister Tom Tugendhat called the response “a fantastic piece of surveillance”, adding that “a massive security operation” is underway ahead of Coronation.
“As we saw last night, the authorities and other services are absolutely ready to intervene when necessary,” he said on BBC Breakfast. The King and Queen Consort, who live near Clarence House, were not at Buckingham Palace at the time of the arrest, although the King had previously received Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese at the palace. According to Chief Superintendent Joseph McDonald, “Officers immediately worked to apprehend the man and took him into police custody.” There have been no cases of officers or members of the public being shot or injured. Officers are still on site and further investigation is underway.”
