A MAN has been Tasered by police outside Buckingham Palace today, Scotland Yard have said.


A Metropolitan Police spokesman said the incident took place at 11.55am.

The Queen and Prince Philip were at Sandringham in Norfolk at the time of the incident.

A scene was cordoned off with police tape 30 metres from the palace gates and an ambulance was parked to the side of the building.

Inside the cordoned-off area lay two knives with six-inch blades and a pair of Nike high top trainers.

Taser wire also lay on the floor with four plastic tubes of two different sizes, three large ones and a small one.

A hat and a black carrier bag containing paper material with a handkerchief beside it also lay on the ground.
