Man breaks into Buckingham Palace while Queen sleeps

An intruder broke into the Royal Family HQ in central London at 2am while the Queen slept just metres away.

The man was able to gain access to the grounds of Buckingham Palace where he allegedly tried to “bang down the doors”.

It wasn’t until four minutes later that he was apprehended by police, reports The Sun.

A Metropolitan Police spokeswoman confirmed to Daily Star Online that the man was arrested on suspicion of trespass.

She said: “The 22-year-old man was arrested at approximately 02:00hrs on Wednesday, 10 July by officers from the Met's Royalty and Specialist Protection Command after he climbed over the front gates at Buckingham Palace.

“The man was not found in possession of any offensive weapons and the incident is not being treated as terrorist-related.

“He remains in custody at a central London police station.”
