Just weeks after security was stepped up due to the Westminster terror attack two 15-year-old boys were able to climb over a barrier and gain access to the carpark at the southern side of the Palace.
They were caught within seconds and arrested under the suspicion of trespass by the police.
A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police said: “The boys attempted to run away but were pursued and detained by police. They were arrested on suspicion of trespassing on a protected site, contrary to section 128 of the Serious Organised Crime Act 2005, shortly before 2.30pm.”
“They did not gain access to any building.”
The incident is not terrorist related.
