Se­cu­rity height­ened as Queen at­tends Sun­day ser­vice

Daily Express - - News - By Dan Townend

CROWDS who went to watch the Queen at­tend church yes­ter­day again faced tough se­cu­rity checks.

Po­lice with snif­fer dogs and scan­ners were on guard as vis­i­tors ap­proached St Mary Mag­da­lene’s in San­dring­ham.

Last month ex­tra pre­cau­tions, were brought in over fears of a po­ten­tial ter­ror­ist at­tack on the 20,000-acre es­tate. They in­cluded armed po­lice at road­blocks, bar­ri­ers and bag searches.

Yes­ter­day the 92-year-old monarch, un­daunted by the se­cu­rity fears, sported a strik­ing pur­ple coat and hat en­sem­ble with satin but­tons and trim.

The ser­vice was at­tended by other mem­bers of the Royal Fam­ily in­clud­ing the Queen’s nephew Earl Snow­don and her cousin’s daugh­ter Lady He­len Tay­lor.

The Queen will re­main at San­dring­ham un­til next month.
