A man who was charged with trespassing on a protected site and attempting to steal from a motor vehicle after being arrested near Buckingham Palace has been denied bail.

Awad Mustafa, 25, of no fixed abode, was arrested on September 16 in the Royal Mews area, next to the palace, following reports a person was seen climbing the wall.

He has also been charged with attempted theft from a motor vehicle belonging to the equestrian stables during the same incident.

Mustafa entered no pleas and was denied bail during a previous hearing at Westminster Magistrates’ Court.

He appeared at the same court on Monday and was remanded into custody until his next court appearance on October 16.

Officers at the royal residence responded to a person climbing the wall and entering the Royal Mews at 1.25am on September 16, the Metropolitan Police said.

Following a search, a man was detained outside the stables.

He did not enter the palace or its gardens at any time, the force added.

The Royal Mews at Buckingham Palace is responsible for all road travel arrangements for the King and members of the royal family, from horse and carriage to car and from livery to harness.
