Met Police have confirmed a man arrested following a security breach at Buckingham Palace has been bailed to return to a central London police station in late August.

The man from Croydon was arrested on suspicion of trespassing on a protected site  (contrary to section 128 of the Serious Organised Crime and Police Act 2005) after he climbed over a security fence at 04.30am at Buckingham Palace.

Officers spotted him climbing over the fence on CCTV and he was arrested very quickly within the security perimeter. 

The man, who had been drinking, did not gain access to the palace.

He was not armed and officers did not need to deploy taser.

The breach is not believed to be terrorism-related.
