Two teenage boys have been arrested on suspicion of trespassing on a protected site after a barrier was climbed at the Palace of Westminster.

The Metropolitan Police said no access was gained to any Parliament building and the incident lasted approximately 30 seconds.

Both youths, who are 15 years old, have been bailed to a date in early May.

The boys were arrested at about 14:30 BST on Saturday. The matter is not being treated as terrorist-related.
