Full details of the route that thousands of members of the public are expected to queue in to see Queen Elizabeth lying in state have been published.

Mourners will be asked to form a line on the Albert Embankment in London, before being issued a wristband. Voluntary groups will be on hand to provide emotional support, including the Samaritans and the Salvation Army, who will provide a ‘listening ear’ service for members of the public.

Queues are expected to be extremely long, with official guidance recommending visitors come prepared to wait for 'many hours, possibly overnight, with very little opportunity to sit down as the queue will be continuously moving'.
