Woman arrested trying to to climb Buckingham Palace gates

A woman was arrested earlier this evening, outside of Buckingham Palace, for trying to climb the front gates.

The incident took place at approximately 17:40 BST, when she was detained by Metropolitan police, having attempted to gain access to palace grounds unsuccessfully.

The woman, believed to be in her 30s, was arrested on suspicion of trespass and is currently in custody at a central London police station, the Met Pol reported.

The incident is not being treated as terrorism-related, a police statement added.

Videos on social media sites show a woman shouting as she was led to a police car, while a crowd had gathered.

Her Majesty is just finishing her holiday at Balmoral, and was not thought to be in residence at the time of the attempt. She is due to undertake an engagement on Thursday, beginning her schedule for the autumn in London.

Updates as they come.
