Police: Man Tasered after 'acting aggresively'

A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police said:

It was approximately 11.50. A man was seen outside the centre gate in possession of two knives.

He was not making threats to members of the public but he was challenged by police.

He acted aggressively and a Taser was discharged.

He is thought to be in his fifties. He was arrested on suspicion of affray and has been taken to a central London police station.


Two knives at scene where man was Tasered

A scene was cordoned off with police tape 30 metres from the palace gates this morning and an ambulance was parked to the side of the building.

Inside the cordoned-off area lay two knives with six-inch blades and a pair of Nike high top trainers.

Taser wire also lay on the floor with four plastic tubes of two different sizes, three large ones and a small one.

A hat and a black carrier bag containing paper material with a handkerchief beside it also lay on the ground.


Man charged with nightclub murder

A man was charged today with killing another man in a nightclub.

Ashley Milne, 22, of Peckham, south east London is accused of the murder of Jamie Sanderson, 20, at the Oceana nightclub in Clarence Street, Kingston, south west London, Scotland Yard said.

He will appear in custody at South Western Magistrates' Court on Monday.

Three men held over tourists scam

Three men have been arrested for allegedly posing as police officers and planning to steal cash and credit cards from tourists in London.

Scotland Yard said the arrests came after some visitors to the capital were approached by men claiming to be officers who then took their credit cards or cash.

Three men, aged 32, 35, and 27, were arrested in central London for impersonating a police officer and conspiracy to steal.

They were in custody in a central London police station pending further inquiries.

Detective Superintendent Steve Osborn said: "Millions of visitors to London will sadly always be an attraction to criminals and it is important that people stay alert.

"We have officers out there on the street identifying and arresting those who are involved in crime."
