A huge number of people have been queuing to see the Queen's coffin in Westminster.

At times, the queue tracker has warned of waiting times of at least 24 hours and it stretches across five miles of London.

The coffin will remain in the hall for the public to view until 6.30am on Monday, ahead of the state funeral in Westminster Abbey.

It has been declared a Bank Holiday by King Charles III so people may mourn the late monarch and many shops and leisure outlets will be closed, while the country will also observe a two minute silence.

We live in a very normal country.
