‘Knifeman’ arrested outside Buckingham Palace just yards away from Queen


A ‘knifeman’ was arrested outside Buckingham Palace today – just 30 seconds before the Queen passed by in a car.

Met Police say the man was led away after being found in possession of a knife in the mall at around 10.40am.

It comes less than 48 hours after a suicide bomber detonated an IED at Manchester Arena, killing 22 and injuring 119.

Prime Minister Theresa May announced yesterday that the terrorism threat level in the UK was being raised to “critical”.

This is the highest alert level, meaning an attack is thought be imminent.
