A man has been arrested at Buckingham Palace, London, following a firearms incident.


A man has been arrested at Buckingham Palace on suspicion of possessing a firearm.


Officers were called to the palace’s visitor entrance just before 13:00 on Sunday.


The man, 38, had already been stopped by the Palace Guard.


He was arrested on suspicion of possessing a firearm (a Taser) and remains in custody at a central London police station.


On its Twitter page, the Metropolitan Police said the incident was not terrorism-related.


Buckingham Palace declined to comment.


The Queen is currently away from her official resident, taking a summer break at Balmoral Castle in Scotland.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Al-Sahawat Times than ever but advertising revenues across the global media industry are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a total paywall. We want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Al-Sahawat Times’ independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe truly ethical media and an unbias perspective really matters.

“I appreciate there not being a paywall: it is more democratic for the media to be available for all and not a commodity to be purchased by a few. I’m happy to make a contribution so others with less means still have access to information.”

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, the future of ethical media and the futures of our staff and their families would be much more secure. For as little as £1, you can support Al-Sahawat Times and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
