This worries me the most because anything could have been done by the intruder in 7 minutes. Frankly, all the walls surrounding the palace should be painted with anti-climb paint.

Appearantly the walls are very high and with spikes on top. Doesn't sound like a very easy climb. Stuff can always happen, but what worry me the most is the 7 minute reaction time!

Anti-climb paint is being used more and more.

Man Arrested Over Buckingham Palace Breach

Trespasser arrested at Buckingham Palace
Quote:
A man has been arrested in the grounds of Buckingham Palace after climbing over a perimeter wall.

The 41-year-old was detained by police at 8.37pm on Wednesday evening after triggering an alarm within the grounds.

The Queen and Prince Philip were in residence at the Palace at the time and were informed of the incident on Thursday morning.

A Scotland Yard spokesman said the trespasser was arrested seven minutes after the perimeter alarm was sounded and was not armed.

Officers who detailed the man did not deploy their Tasers, according to the Metropolitan Police spokesman.

Her was arrested on suspicion of trespassing on a protected site and remains in custody.

Commander Adrian Usher, head of the Met's Royalty and Specialist Protection, said: "I am content that our security measures worked effectively on this occasion and at no time was any individual at risk."

While the Met insist the latest incident shows their security measures are working, there may be questions over why it took seven minutes to apprehend the intruder after the alarm was first triggered.

But Dai Davies, the former head of the Met's royal protection branch said he felt the incident showed the security systems were working well.

He said: "It would appear from what we know that things have worked well in this case and the police have responded quickly and effectively. The Buckingham Palace gardens are large at around 37 acres, so to locate and apprehend the intruder within seven minutes is very good.

"I am jolly pleased that in this case the security system as been found to be very effective. The police get stick when they get it wrong but in this instance they should be praised for acting quickly and effectively."

There are buildings built into the wall as well e.g. The Queen's Gallery and The Mews meaning that it isn't all fence around the grounds.

Didn't Michael Fagan get in by climbing on to the Queen's Gallery?

Its quite scary that a man with his record was able to get in and that the queen was in residence at the time,I can only imagine the current mood at the Palace security office.

Buckingham Palace intruder was convicted murderer who had been monitored by probation services until 2013
Quote:
On Friday, Hennessy, now 41, was sent back to prison for four months after admitting walking through the gardens of the Palace on Thursday to admire "the view".

As he was detained , he asked "is Ma'am in?" repeatedly, prosecutor Tom Nicholson told Westminster Magistrates' Court.

There has been way too many incidences of this nature.

It is time security was increased.

The wall need to be extended and raised. The trees near the wall or buildings needs to be cut down and the barbed wires need to be sharper.

That wouldn't stop them getting in via the Queen's Gallery or The Mews - which have no fences or wall or barbed wire.

If someone wants to get in then they will find a way. So long as security stops them getting to the principals then they are doing their jobs.
