Man arrested in United Kingdom after climbing Buckingham Palace gates

Man, 22, arrested after climbing Buckingham Palace fence at 2am

An intruder has broken into Buckingham Palace as the Queen slept just metres away.

They added, "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".

It will raise serious security concerns for the palace, and comes nearly exactly 37 years after Michael Fagan famously broke into the Queen's bedroom.

As of now, a police spokesperson said the man, who didn't have any weapons on him, is in the custody of the central London police and is being held on suspicion of trespassing.

The London-born father-of-four also wandered barefoot through the Palace corridors, drank Prince Charles' wine and urinated in the food bowls of the Queen's corgis.

The royal standard flag was flying at the palace at the time of the break-in, meaning the Queen was in residence.

No members of the royal family were at the palace at the time, and the man, who was found shortly before 10.30pm "in an area now open to the public during the day", was arrested for burglary, trespass and criminal damage.

A man has been arrested after climbing Buckingham Palace's front gates in the early hours of the morning. "He was determined to get inside the palace and was banging down the doors but, thank goodness, everything was locked up".

"How is it possible all these years later that someone can climb the fence and get right inside the grounds without being stopped immediately? The Queen's safety should be paramount".

Two days later the Metropolitan Police apologised to the Duke of York after officers challenged him in the gardens of Buckingham Palace at around 6pm.

A royal insider has told The Sun the intruder was in the palace unrestricted for several minutes.

The Queen, 93, is reportedly due to be informed about the incident.

"We are all relieved that the doors were locked this time and he wasn't able to get inside where the Queen was".

The freaky conversation saw the 31-year-old schizophrenic tell the Queen about his family problems.

The most famous was at 7.15am on the morning of July 9, 1982, when unemployed labourer Fagan scaled the walls and entered the Queen's bedroom.

Fagan spent 10 minutes with the monarch - who, despite lying in bed in her nightie, kept a notoriously cool head throughout the ordeal - before she was rescued by a footman who sounded the alarm.
