A man who handcuffed himself to the gates outside Buckingham Palace in central London has been arrested.
The man approached the gates at about 17:30 BST on Thursday and handcuffed himself to them before threatening “to harm himself”, police said.
He was arrested on suspicion of possession of an offensive weapon at about 01:00 on Friday.
“He was taken to a south London hospital to be assessed before being taken into custody,” the Met said.
A large cordon which was in place while officers were at the scene has been removed.
