However everyone already in place will get into Westminster Hall.

A Government source said: “We don’t want people to make long journeys only to find it closed.

They added: “The public desire to view the Lying-in-State has been phenomenal.

“We will give people as much notice as possible so they can avoid disappointment.

“We are monitoring the numbers incredibly closely to make a judgement on final capacity.

“We have always said we will need to close the queue well in advance of the Lying-in-State ending.”

The fasttrack queue for disabled mourners closed at 4.30pm yesterday.
