THE queue to see the coffin will close today, with people being advised last night not to join.
Officials say the berth will be open until 6.30am tomorrow, but the queue will close “well before”.
However, anyone already present will be able to enter Westminster Hall.
A Government source said: “We don’t want people making long journeys only to find it’s closed.
They added: “The public’s desire to see the lies in the state has been phenomenal.
“We will inform people as early as possible so that they can avoid disappointment.
