A man has been detained by police after a witness said he “ran up to the Queen’s coffin” in Westminster Hall.

The Metropolitan Police said: “Around 10pm on Friday 16 September, officers from the Met’s Parliamentary and Diplomatic Protection Command detained a man in Westminster Hall following a disturbance.

“He was arrested for an offence under the Public Order Act and is currently in custody.”

A parliamentary spokesman said: “We’re aware of an incident in Westminster Hall, in which a member of the public moved out of the queue and towards the catafalque.
