A knifeman who tried to break into Buckingham Palace to complain about his benefits being cut has been jailed for 16 months. 44-year-old David Belmar jumped over a barrier armed with a six inch knife in October last year.
Belmar was rugby tackled to the ground by armed police in the palace forecourt. Horrified tourists and their children looked on at the gates. The knife was found hidden inside a plastic bag in his jacket pocket.
