Queen Elizabeth II’s coffin has been carried into Westminster Hall, where the public will have the chance to pay their respects to the late monarch as she lies in state.

Crowds had already begun to gather around the parliament buildings, as mourners prepared to face queues of up to 35 hours to bid Britain’s longest-serving monarch a final farewell before her funeral next Monday.
