A list of locations has been made available to members of the public hoping to pay their respects to the Queen along the route she is being driven into London tonight.

The plane carrying the Queen’s coffin took off from Edinburgh Airport shortly before 5.40pm, and is travelling to RAF Northolt in London.

Accompanying the casket was her daughter Princess Anne, who said: "It has been an honour and a privilege to accompany her on her final journeys."

Up to a million people are expected to queue to see the Queen's coffin after it is laid to rest in London's Westminster Hall tomorrow.

Already some people are camping along the Mall ahead of the 96-year-old monarch's funeral on Monday.

Mourners hoping to see the Queen lying-in-state in the capital this week have been warned to expect long queues that could last overnight.
