A man was detained when he "ran up" and touched the casket of Queen Elizabeth II.

After rushing Queen Elizabeth II's casket on Friday night, a man was detained.

Thousands of people have lined up to pay their respects to the late Queen as she lies in state.

In the historic Westminster Hall, the Queen's closed coffin is placed on a catafalque, a raised platform.

The Evening Standard claimed that a man was detained after he "ran up" to Queen Elizabeth II's casket at Westminster Hall in London.

Approximately 10 o'clock on Friday night was when the "disturbance" happened, according to a statement from Scotland Yard.

According to the Evening Standard, it caused the live stream of the Queen's lying-in-state to briefly stop displaying mourners inside Westminster Hall.
