The long arm of the law was a little shorter than normal at Sandringham, where the Queen attended church with the Duke of Edinburgh.

Three-year-old Kayden Scuffham dressed up as a policeman as he joined around 200 other people at St Mary Magdalene Church who were trying to get a glimpse of the Queen, 91, and Prince Philip, 96, at yesterday's service.

The visit was conducted amid tight security but it did not trouble the youngster from Retford, Nottinghamshire.

A delighted Kayden was all smiles as he was given special attention by one of the police officers carrying out the security checks before they went through the gates.

His mother, Ruth Scuffham, said it was certainly a day her young son would not forget.
