Ulsterman held during Royal wedding swoops

One of the 55 people arrested in London during Friday's Royal wedding celebrations was a Co Tyrone man.

Piotr Domzala (33), of Caledon Road, Aughnacloy, was charged with possession of an offensive weapon and given bail.

Scotland Yard Assistant Commissioner Lynne Owens said her 5,000 officers should be “immensely proud” of their role in the “happy and safe” event.

Anti-terror powers were used to arrest a man spotted taking suspicious photographs of transport hubs and security personnel in the Charing Cross area. Ten other people were arrested at Charing Cross railway station carrying climbing equipment and anti-monarchy placards. Officers also swooped on two minor anti-wedding protests in central London.

Other offences included an allegation of a sex attack on a 14-year-old girl, criminal damage and 25 breaches of the peace.
