Queue to see the Queen's lying-in-state coffin will close TODAY | The Sun

THE queue to see the coffin will close today, with people advised last night not to join it.

Officials say the lying-in-state will be open until 6.30am tomorrow but the queue will shut “well before then”.

However everyone already in place will get into Westminster Hall.

A Government source said: “We don’t want people to make long journeys only to find it closed.

They added: “The public desire to view the Lying-in-State has been phenomenal.

"We will give people as much notice as possible so they can avoid disappointment.
