Used wristbands to see Queen lying in state are being sold online

Wristbands given to people queuing up to see the Queen lying in state are now being sold online – with some listed for hundreds of pounds.

The wristbands have been appearing on eBay, with some selling for as much as £446.

They allow members of the public to go and get food and drink and visit the loo so they can rejoin the queue.

At one point, fives-mile queues and 24-hour plus waits were announced by the government, as thousands of people have being paying their respects to the Queen lying in state.

Other remembrance items have also been sold on after the Queen’s death.

Commemorative newspapers, mugs, and coins have also been sold online.

But for some bizarre reason, some of the wristbands are being listed to sell six days from now – meaning buying the wristbands would not let anyone in to see the Queen lying in state whose funeral is on Monday.
