Windsor Castle: Queen 'assassination' bid video probed
Police are investigating a video linked to a man who was found with a crossbow at Windsor Castle on Christmas Day.
The footage, obtained by The Sun newspaper, appears to show a masked person in a hoodie holding a crossbow.
They are shown addressing the camera saying they wanted to "assassinate the Queen" in a "revenge" mission.
Scotland Yard confirmed detectives were "assessing the contents of a video" following the arrest of a 19-year-old man from Southampton.
The police spokesman declined to comment on the identity of the person in the video.
Buckingham Palace has also declined to comment.
A 19-year-old suspect was sectioned under the Mental Health Act after being found in the castle grounds.
He was arrested at about 08:30 GMT on Christmas Day and was initially held on suspicion of breach or trespass of a protected site, and possession of an offensive weapon.
