The Public Will Be Informed
The Press Association would be the next to be informed, alerting the world’s media.
As part of the London Bridge is Down plan most news platforms have pre-prepared stories, films and obituaries in the event of the Queen’s death. When the news finally reaches them these will be released onto the news cycle.
Newsreaders will wear black suits and ties. They will also announce the news of Queen Elizabeth’s death with the of the words “it is with the greatest sorrow that we make the following announcement”.
In radio stations across the UK, blue obituary lights will start flashing. When this light flashes DJs will switch to the news so they can spread the news of the Queen’s passing.
A team will assemble at the Department of Culture, Media and Sport. The team will include government, police, security and armed forces
