Four charged over palace protest

Four people have been charged following a climate change protest outside Buckingham Palace that saw activists chain themselves to the gates.
A teacher and three unemployed people are accused of breaching Royal Parks regulations and the Serious Organised Crime and Police Act.
Peter Coville, 45, from Riverside Court in Reading will appear in court next month alongside Fiona Brooke, 23, of Billingshurst Road in Horsham, Sussex, Cyril Zeldine, 33, of John Islip Street in Pimlico, south west London, and Philip Thornhill, 57, of Rockmount Road in Woolwich, south east London, the Metropolitan Police said.
The four were arrested after demonstrators who said they represented the Climate Siren group scaled the Palace gates and secured themselves to the railings.
They were bailed to appear at London's Westminster Magistrates' Court on July 10.
