Chinese Delegation BANNED From Viewing Queen Elizabeth Lying-In-State

Britain is on a collision course with Beijing  today after the Parliamentary authorities banned the Chinese delegation from viewing the Queen's coffin.

All heads of state visiting London for the funeral on Monday have been invited to pay their respects to the late monarch in Westminster Hall before her funeral.

China's president Xi Jinping was invited to Monday's event but is instead sending a delegation led by vice-president Wang Qishan. 

But House of Commons Speaker Lindsay Hoyle has denied a request for the Chinese group to enter the ancient heart of British democracy.
