Police detained an armed man who entered the grounds of Windsor Castle, where Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain and her family celebrate Christmas. This was announced on December 25 by the TV channel Sky News…
“The police said that an armed man was detained after entering the grounds of Windsor Castle on Christmas Day,” the report says.
It is noted that the 19-year-old detainee was taken into custody.
Officers from the Thames Valley and the Metropolitan Police were summoned due to a security breach at Windsor Castle at about 8.30 am (11.30 Moscow time).
“After this incident, the investigation continues, and we are working with colleagues from the metropolitan police. The man was detained on suspicion of violating or illegally entering the protected area and possession of offensive weapons, ”the TV channel quotes Superintendent Rebecca Mears from the Thames Valley Police.
According to her, the man did not enter any buildings. It is emphasized that members of the royal family were informed about the incident.
“We do not believe there is a serious danger to the public,” she added.
Earlier Sky News, citing Buckingham Palace, said that Elizabeth II will spend Christmas at Windsor Castle, and not at Sandringham Palace, where this holiday is traditionally celebrated. Royals will also come to Windsor during the holidays. The celebration has been postponed to Windsor for the second year in a row due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Earlier, on December 12, it was reported that an armed man was shot and killed while being detained near Kensington Palace in London. Eyewitnesses watched as a man with a firearm entered the bank and bookmakers in the vicinity of Marlows Road, and then got into the car and drove away. Fifteen minutes after the reports arrived, armed officers stopped the vehicle at the intersection of Kensington Road and Palace Gate, near Kensington Palace. During the arrest, shots were fired.
