: Here’s how long the queue is to see the Queen lying in state
The British government has released a new live queue tracker, tracking just how long the lines are to pay respect to Queen Elizabeth II, who’s lying in state at Westminster Hall.
As of Thursday morning, the queue stretched 2.6 miles, near Borough Market.
The queue could potentially stretch as far as Southwark Park, nearly 7 miles away in South East London. At the park, they have the capacity for another 3 miles worth of zig-zagged queues.
People will get a numbered wristband that will allow them short breaks to go to the toilet or get refreshments. Food or drink has to be disposed before entering the security search point.
Photography is banned in Westminster Hall.
