On Saturday, the Metropolitan Police said the female officer who suffered a stab wound to the arm had been released from hospital, while the male officer remained under medical supervision.

The officers taken to the hospital – both attached to the Met’s Central West Command Unit responsible for policing oversight in Westminster – were performing routine duties and not part of the wider police operation that took place after the Queen’s death.
