'It Was All So Simple,' says Bin Laden Double
- Security questioned by royal party gatecrasher

THE MAN who gatecrashed Prince William's 21st birthday party dressed as Osama bin Laden has spoken of the ease with which he managed to breach royal security.

"It was unbelievably simple, I'm amazed I got in," said Aaron Barschak. "Royal security is not at all what I expected."

Barschak is believed to have co-operated fully with police in detailing areas of lapses in security on Saturday night when the 'comedy-terrorist' managed to get on stage at the Prince's fancy-dress party.

Home Secretary David Blunkett has ordered an immediate report from police on the matter and might also call for a fuller inquiry.

The future for Barschak is unclear. He has been bailed to appear in court in a month's time and may end up missing the Edinburgh Festival fringe show for which his stunt was bizarre publicity.
