Two women were sexually assaulted while queuing to see the Queen lying in state, a court heard.

Adio Adeshine, 19, allegedly exposed himself and pushed mourners from behind as they lined up at Victoria Tower Gardens in Westminster, central London, on Wednesday night.

He would have entered the Thames to try to escape the police, before coming out and being arrested.

Adeshine was remanded into custody on Friday after appearing at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on two counts of sexual assault and two counts of breaching a sexual abuse prevention order.

The court heard that the first plaintiff noticed Adeshine because she had not seen him before, despite waiting in the queue with the same people for hours.

It is said that she noticed him approaching her before feeling something touch her back, then turned around to see that he had exposed himself.

The woman later allegedly saw Adeshine acting the same way towards another woman, before security was alerted and the police called.

He allegedly threw his phone into the Thames before entering the water himself, but was arrested shortly after getting out of the river.

Outlining the allegations, prosecutor Alex Adowale said: “The defendant was part of the queue to see Queen Elizabeth II rest in state.”

Her alleged victims are believed to have been among thousands of people who lined the banks of the River Thames to view the Queen’s coffin.
