David Belmar pleads guilty to Buckingham Palace trespass while armed with knife
A 44-year-old man has pleaded guilty to attempting to get into Buckingham Palace while carrying a knife.
On Monday, David Belmar, of Daleview Road, Tottenham, was rugby tackled to the ground by police as he tried to enter palace grounds at around 11.30am.
Officers searched him and found that he was carrying a six-inch knife.
Yesterday, he appeared at Westminster Magistrates Court where he admitted jumping over a vehicle barrier at the north gate in an attempt to see the queen.
The Queen was not in the palace at the time of the incident.
After being stopped Belmar was arrested and charged with suspicion of trespassing on a protected site and possession of a knife.
He has been remanded in custody and will appear at Southwark Crown Court for sentencing at a later date.
