Queen’s demise: Thousands form orderly queue in London

Thousands of mourners have taken their places in a queue snaking around the centre of London, recognising without complaint that they might have to wait for hours to see the late Queen Elizabeth lying in state.

Some even braved the rain and slept on the pavement overnight to secure their position in the queue, which could stretch for 16 kilometres to gain access to Westminster Hall, the oldest building on the estate that houses parliament where the late Queen will lie in state until her funeral on Monday.

As people began filing past the Queen’s coffin in Westminster Hall from 5pm, many stopped for a moment to bow their head and some wiped away tears.
