Friday February 12, 2010

The Duke of York has reportedly struck a uniformed policeman while driving into Buckingham Palace.

Police are investigating the incident in which the officer was apparently trying to move two Japanese tourists out of the way of the prince's 4x4.

The policeman suffered minor injuries to his arm and has made a complaint to his superiors.

A Buckingham Palace spokeswoman described it as "a health and safety matter."
