A 41-year-old man has been charged with trespass in the grounds of Buckingham Palace, after allegedly scaling a perimeter wall.

Dennis Hennessy, 41, of Wembley, north-west London, was charged on Thursday with trespass on a protected site and criminal damage.

He was found by officers seven minutes after an alarm was activated on Wednesday evening, the Met Police said.

He is due to appear at Westminster Magistrates' Court later on Friday.
