Man arrested after egg thrown at the King during Luton visit

SKY NEWS - STAFF - DEC 6, 2022

Eggs are thrown at the King during a public walkabout for the second time in a month, but he was not hit and continued with his visit.

King ushered away from crowd by security

A man has been arrested after an egg was thrown in the direction of the King during a walkabout in Luton.

A suspect in his 20s was in custody on suspicion of common assault after he was detained in St George's Square this morning, Bedfordshire Police said.

The King was temporarily steered away from crowds outside the town hall by security staff but continued to shake hands with the public after being moved to a different area.

A protester was also arrested last month after throwing eggs at the King in York.

At the start of today's visit, the King met representatives from the Royal British Legion, the Ghana Society, Luton Town's football academy, veterans and cadets.

He then visited the Guru Nanak Gurdwara in the town and met volunteers at the Luton Sikh Soup Kitchen Stand.

The King wore a Ramaal headscarf for the visit to the new temple and bowed in front of the Sikh holy book, Guru Granth Sahib.

He also rode on Luton's cable-drawn Dart mass passenger transit system, which links the train station to the airport.

The Royal Family is braced for the release of Harry and Meghan's contentious documentary on Thursday.
