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

Security staff detained the 38-year-old as he went through security scanners at the visitor entrance shortly before 12.45 BST.

He was arrested on suspicion of possessing a firearm, namely a Taser, and remains in custody.

The Met said the incident is not thought to be terror-related. The palace declined to comment.
