Security and diplomacy challenges for the Queen’s funeral as mourners queue for hours. Bob Broadhurst, who was the Met Police commander in charge of both Prince William and Catherine’s wedding and the London 2012 Olympics, talks us through the security risks and how protesters will be policed. Simon McDonald, the UK’s former top diplomat, says the funeral will likely be the biggest diplomatic event the UK has ever seen and explains why he thinks the government was right to invite China’s President Xi. We get up to date on the Treasury’s potential plan to scrap the cap on bankers’ bonuses ahead of a ‘mini Budget’ next week. And Adam talks to musical royalty, Andrew Lloyd Webber, about his memories of writing and performing for the Queen, including in private. Today’s Newscast was made by Daniel Wittenberg with Amy Elizabeth and Clare Williamson. The technical producer was Emma Crowe. The assistant editor was Sam Bonham.
