Queen dies: A queue for the queue - mourners waiting to see coffin now placed in holding pen
Mourners are continuing to arrive at the closed queue to see the Queen lying in state - and have been placed in a holding pen.
The official queue to Westminster Hall was closed after hitting capacity at 9.50am, with officials saying it would not be reopened for at least six hours.
Not a reaction I would have expected only a few weeks ago. Pumped up by the media no doubt, but before the death of Queen Elizabeth, I would have expected a more muted reaction to her demise. Not that I gave it much thought, but it is sobering to have been so wrong.
