Armed man caught at Buckingham Palace

  • A man carrying an offensive weapon, who tried to enter Buckingham Palace, was searched and detained by the police. 

    According to the Daily Beast, the 44-year old man attempted to use the everyday entrance to get inside the building but is not being held in a police station in London. 

    The queen was not in the building in the time of the incident and no one ended up getting hurt. 

    Two men were arrested only last month for breaking in at Buckingham Palace; this marked the most serious breach at the building in a span of 30 years. 

    Back in 1982, an intruder managed to enter the building and wandered in a room where Queen Elizabeth was in bed.
