2 mins read

A person has been removed from the procession route of Queen Elizabeth’s coffin to Westminster Hall after collapsing. Police assisted paramedics in taking them away for treatment.

London has been braced for an influx of visitors as people from across the country and around the world flood to the capital to pay their respects.

Queen Elizabeth will lie in state in the Houses of Parliament for round the clock visitation, after being transported from Buckingham Palace this afternoon, until her funeral next Monday.

The London Ambulance Service was contacted for comment.

As of twelve minutes before Her Majesty’s body departed the palace for Westminster, City Hall said all viewing areas for the procession were full.

In a short statement, it said there was “no entry to any new arrivals”, and asked that onlookers instead head to Hyde Park to watch proceedings on large screens.

The procession began at 2.22pm and ended at Parliament at 3pm.
