Police: How Man arrested after reports egg thrown in monarch's direction

A man has been arrested on suspicion of common assault after an egg was allegedly thrown in the direction of the King.

The alleged incident occurred on Tuesday while King Charles was on a walkabout in Luton town centre.

According to Bedfordshire Police, a man in his twenties was detained and is currently in custody.

The monarch was escorted away from the crowds by his security team before continuing to meet with members of the public.

The royal couple had just arrived in the city on 9 November to unveil a statue in honour of the late Queen at York Minster when four eggs were thrown, all of which missed.

Many of those who¬†greeted King Charles at Luton Town Hall¬†wished him a “Merry Christmas”, while some had brought presents to give to him.

The King also met with community leaders from the Ghana Society, the Royal British Legion, and the Luton Town football academy, as well as officially opening the Guru Nanak Gurdwara temple.

Later, the King boarded the DART (Direct Air-Rail Transit), a new airport shuttle that will connect passengers traveling from Luton Airport Parkway station to the terminal.
