A woman has been arrested for an attempted burglary at St Thomas’s School, Battersea, where Prince George became a pupil just last week.
Scotland Yard has confirmed that the incident happened at 2.15pm on Tuesday 12th September. It’s unclear at this point what the woman’s intentions were for the break in. A spokesperson for the Metropolitan Police said officers had “attended immediately after the issue came to light”, and the intruder was consequently arrested.
The Metropolitan Police have issued a statement, which reads, “The arrested woman was taken to a south London police station where she remains in custody.
“We are working with the school, which is attended by His Royal Highness Prince George, to review its security arrangements after the incident.”
In an interview with the Telegraph, Sarah Burnett-Moore, 54, revealed how lax the security measures in place to protect the children are, after she was able to walk through the front gates of the school without being questioned and make her way to a classroom.
