Man arrested in United Kingdom after climbing Buckingham Palace gates

A year ago a homeless man who trespassed in the grounds of Buckingham Palace and damaged items before sleeping on them was jailed for 28 days.

A man has been arrested after reportedly climbing the front gates of Buckingham Palace while Queen Elizabeth II was inside.

Prince Andrew said: "The police have a hard job to do balancing security for the Royal Family and deterring intruders, and sometimes they get it wrong".

They released the following statement: "Officers have arrested a man on suspicion of trespass, contrary to section 128 of the Serious Organised Crime and Police Act 2005".

The Queen was in residence at the time, a palace spokeswoman confirmed.

Our royal insider revealed: "There was an intruder at the Palace while the Queen lay sleeping in her bedroom and he was on the loose for a good few minutes before the cops arrested him".

"Officers quickly established that he wasn't carrying any weapons and the incident isn't terror related".

Sources told British tabloids it took police nearly five minutes to apprehend the man, as it remained unclear whether or not he was armed.

There has been speculation the intruder was attempting to replicate Michael Fagan, a man who broke into the Queen's bedroom nearly 37 years ago.

Fagan scaled a palace drainpipe to enter the queen's bedroom and sat chatting with her for 10 minutes before she was able to summon help.

A Palace source explained: "Of course this will be a matter of great interest to the Queen".

The unemployed father-of-four, 31, spent around 10 minutes talking to the Queen after he climbed over the palace walls and up a drainpipe.

The royal source added: "This intruder got into the Palace nearly 37 years to the day since Michael Fagan ended up getting inside the Queen's bedroom".

This isn't the first time a member of the public has got too close to the Queen for comfort.

During the chat the Queen pushed the panic button by her bed but got no response, and it wasn't until her aide Paul Whybrew retruend with her corgis that he saw Fagan.

The Queen managed to raise the alarm when Fagan asked for a cigarette, allowing her to call for a footman who held him until police arrived.
