Queen Elizabeth to be evacuated in case of Brexit unrest

A plan has been put in place to relocate the British royal family in case of Brexit unrest in London.

According to media reports, the "emergency evacuation plans have been in existence since the Cold War," and will be revived in the eventuality of any "civil disorder".

"If there were problems in London, clearly you would remove the royal family away from those key sites," a police officer is quoted in the UK media. 

This comes as the British government struggles to get parliamentary support for a Brexit transition agreement with the EU.
