Windsor Castle Security Threat
- Couple arrested for allegedly impersonating police officers

A MAN and a woman have been arrested at Windsor Castle for allegedly impersonating police officers.

The couple, said to be in their 30s, are being held at a London police station after allegedly gaining entry yesterday to the Royal residence by pretending to be a policeman. Although there were no members of the Royal family present at the time, the implications for such an event are serious, especially in the light of an incident last year in which a man dressed as an Islamic terrorist gatecrashed a party at the castle.

"We are reviewing all the circumstances of the arrest," said a spokesperson for the Metropolitan Police, who are expected to conduct a post mortem of the security breach.
