London: Fans of Michael Jackson, on his first death anniversary, will have limited access to his cemetery, US authorities said.

The King of Pop’s followers will be able to pay homage in the grounds of California``s Forest Lawn cemetery, but not at the mausoleum where Jackson was laid to rest, reports the BBC.

“They will be viewing it from a distance,” police officer Tom Lorenz told the Los Angeles Times.

“We understand that Forest Lawn is working with the Jackson family for some kind of commemoration,” Sergeant Lorenz said.

“We will be working closely with Forest Lawn to ensure the safety of those who want to pay their respects to Michael Jackson while ensuring the safety of others who are coming to the cemetery to pay respects to their loved ones,” he added.
