Buckingham Palace intruder: Man who broke into grounds is convicted murderer

Buckingham Palace has declined to comment on the security incident PA
A convicted murderer who scaled the perimeter wall of Buckingham Palace before "admiring" the gardens for 10 minutes has been jailed for four months.

Dennis Hennessy, of Barnhill Road, Wembley, north-west London, cut his right hand as he climbed over the top of the wall, which is between 8ft to 10ft high, and set the alarm off.

He then walked around the gardens for about 10 minutes towards the Palace, where the Queen was in residence with the Duke of Edinburgh and the Duke of York, before being arrested by armed police.

As he was detained, he asked "is Ma'am in?" repeatedly, prosecutor Tom Nicholson told Westminster Magistrates' Court.

In interview he told police he had "walked through the gardens admiring the view".

Hennessy, 41, pleaded guilty to one count of trespass on a protected site and one count of criminal damage.

The court heard he was on licence after being convicted of the murder of a homeless man in 1992.

Chief magistrate, senior district judge Howard Riddle, sentenced him to four months for trespassing and two months, to run concurrently, for damaging the wires of the alarm system.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
