Miles-Long Queue to View Queen's Coffin Stretches Through London

People waited in line to see the late Queen Elizabeth II’s coffin lying in state at Westminster Hall in London on Friday, September 16.

Craig Fetterman said he filmed this footage of the line at Southwark Park on Friday.

Entry to the queue had been paused Friday after the line reached five miles long. The Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport said Southwark Park had reached capacity and the queue would reopen after six hours.

“The mother of all queues for the mother of the nation,” Ferriman wrote on Twitter.
