Windsor Castle in fake bomb security breach
ITN News | April 7, 2005
Again this proves that there aren't terrorists running around our back gardens as they claim. If there were, there would be bombings every day.
The Royal Family are facing yet more embarrassment over security after a journalist drove a fake bomb into Windsor Castle - the venue for this weekend's Royal wedding celebrations.
The reporter posed as a delivery man and drove a van with the bomb in it past Castle guards. The fake device was nestled in a brown box with the word "bomb" written on the side.
The journalist then drove near the Queen's apartments and past the chapel where the Prince of Wales and Camilla Parker Bowles are due to be blessed on Saturday.
A Scotland Yard spokesman said: "This apparent breach of security at Windsor Castle in the run-up to the royal wedding properly raises serious concern.
The statement added: "The commissioner has ordered an immediate inquiry to establish these facts."
This latest security breach comes after two tourists were found in the private quarters over the weekend.
And self-styled comedy terrorist Aaron Barschak was involved in another high-profile security breach when he gatecrashed Prince William's 21st birthday party in 2003.
