Police foil second intruder at Buckingham Palace

Just days after Victor Miller was invited to ‘help the police with their enquiries’ in a nice white padded room, police have foiled another intruder within the grounds of Buckingham Palace.
Miller, 37, from East London was found 'in an area currently open to the public during the day' after scaling a 12ft fence to get into the palace. He was arrested for burglary, trespass and criminal damage on Monday after apparently making a kamikaze, and clearly not fully thought through bid to burgle the coronation jewels. At this point he was removed to a ‘mental health facility’ for reasons that are not immediately clear. In further proof that absolutely everyone in the spotlight these days fancies themselves as a DJ, Miller claims to have worked with Amy Winehouse, N-Dubz and Tinchy Strider through his production company UK Artist Development – though the N-Dubz connection may have been enough to warrant his being sectioned in case society suddenly found itself with another Dappy on its hands.
Yet police discovered an infinitely more sinister plot in the palace grounds when they uncovered someone masquerading as a respectable beacon of society. Prince Andrew was challenged by armed police who had most likely been administered a ‘firm reproach’ after Vic was found ‘in da house’ and were on crimson alert. The Duke of York – no stranger to moral malleability himself – was enjoying a picturesque stroll through the gardens when according to one report, he was told to ‘put your hands up and get on the ground’. Police have denied this seductive version of events and put out the far less juicy
‘On Wednesday, September 4, at approximately 6pm, two uniformed officers approached a man in the gardens of Buckingham Palace to verify his identity.
'The man was satisfactorily identified. No weapons were drawn and no force was used.’
Reports that Andrew has also been invited to tea with the men in white coats are totally unfounded, but it seems that the irresistible magnetism Buckingham Palace holds for shady characters is still thriving
