London awash in tributes to Queen Elizabeth

STORY: People stop to take pictures as chalk artist Julian Beever creates a portrait of the queen on the pavements of Trafalgar Square. Meanwhile in Green Park, thousands of flowers and cards have been left by well-wishers.

The queen's coffin will leave Scotland for the first time since her death later on Tuesday (September 13) when it is flown to London in the early evening and then driven to Buckingham Palace.

Elizabeth died on Thursday (September 8) in her holiday home at Balmoral Castle, in the Scottish Highlands, at the age of 96 after a 70-year reign, plunging the nation into mourning. Her funeral will be held on Sept. 19.
