Oct. 7 (UPI) — London police arrested a woman who tried scaling the front gate of Buckingham Palace in front of a crowd of tourists on Saturday evening.
London Metropolitan Police said the woman, who was not identified, was in her 30s. She was charged with suspicion of trespassing. A police spokesman said the incident was not suspected to be terrorist-related.
