In London, police shot and killed a figure skater who was crossing the retinue of King Charles III.
This Friday, a man on skates was detained in London after he unexpectedly slipped into a guarded security perimeter to allow Carlos III’s entourage to pass.
A bystander was tackled by British police officers, who fell to the ground at the same time. The King was on his way to Westminster Hall to meet his brothers and watch Queen Elizabeth II’s coffin.
In central London, Big Ben, Parliament, Buckingham Palace and Westminster Cathedral, some roads are closed due to relocation in connection with the death of Elizabeth II. Subway stations are also closed, specially trained dogs search for explosives, and if you have binoculars (or her eye), you can easily spot snipers on the rooftops of strategically located buildings.
It is the most complex police operation in national history. Ten years ago for the Olympics, for example, you could prepare in advance and rehearse as often as you wanted, and now suddenly you have to worry about the safety of five hundred leaders.
And when there are about 750,000 people on the streets, they are all potential terrorists and victims at the same time, who don’t need to go through any metal detectors. His surveillance will be in the hands of crowd infiltrating security cameras and plainclothes agents. “It’s a nightmare, no matter how you look at it,” says the veteran Metropolitan Police.
And not only because of the threat of attack, but theft, smashing, all kinds of incidents. The spirits are on the surface and there have already been verbal skirmishes between traditionalists who bow their heads as the funeral procession departs and others (mostly) who are not so traditional and film the scene on their cell phones.
