A man has been charged in connection with a breach of the peace during the procession of the Queen's coffin in Edinburgh on Monday.

The 22-year-old was arrested after the Duke of York was abused as he walked behind his mother's coffin as it made its way from the Palace of Holyroodhouse to St Giles' Cathedral.
