'She's not dead': UK man arrested after planning to tell the Queen to 'get out' of the coffin

Hague is among the two men arrested during the viewing of the later monarch's coffin.

Since the announcement of Queen Elizabeth's death, Britain has been in mourning. Thousands gathered in queues to catch a glimpse of her last moments on earth and honoured her life in every way possible. However, amid such an emotional atmosphere, one man said that the Queen is not dead. Later, the man was detained by the police.

A man named Mark Hague told a television crew that he was going to tell the Queen to get out of the coffin as he believed she was not dead. Consequently, he was arrested by the London Metropolitan Police for an offence under the public order act.

“A male, now known to be Mr Hague, was heard saying, ‘I will tell her to get out of her f***ing coffin because she’s not dead'," said Prosecutor Louise Burnell.

Hague is among the two men arrested during the viewing of the later monarch's coffin. Reportedly, he was taken into custody for being abusive toward police officers who were trying to remove him from the scene. Additionally, the man was charged with a fine of Rs 10,888 (£120) for his demeanour.

A third man was also detained. He was charged with two counts of sexual assault and two counts of breaching a sexual harm prevention order.

The public was allowed to view the Queen's coffin from Wednesday onwards. The queue stretched to about 11 km, with many standing in line through the night. The public viewing was closed on Sunday. The last person to bid farewell to the Queen was a serving member of the Royal Air Force, Chrissy Heerey.
