The incident happened at about 5:40 p.m. local time on Saturday when officers near Buckingham Palace observed a woman climbing the front gates of the palace. She was taken into custody before gaining access to the palace grounds.

The Metropolitan Police Service - also known as Scotland Yard - said the woman is believed to be in her 30s. She was taken to a central London police station after being arrested on suspicion of trespass and trespass on a designated site.

"The incident is not being treated as terrorist-related," police said in a statement, providing no further details.

Buckingham Palace, the home of Queen Elizabeth II, has been the site of security alerts in the past.
