Man charged with trespassing at Windsor Castle

A man is due in court after being found trespassing at Windsor Castle.

Robert Pennefather, from County Tipperary in Ireland, was arrested in the grounds of Royal residence by the Metropolitan Police in the early hours of November 6, last year.

The 32-year-old has been released on bail to appear before Westminster Magistrates Court on Friday, March 23 charged with trespass.

The Queen was not in residence at the time.

Windsor Castle - the largest and oldest occupied castle in the world - is deemed a designated site.

Trespassing on such a site is considered an offence under the Serious Organised Crime and Police Act 2005.
