Royal bodyguard fired accidental shot: UK police
London: Police are investigating an incident in which an officer believed to be guarding the home of Prince William and his wife the former Kate Middleton accidentally fired a shot inside a vehicle.
Metropolitan Police confirmed today that the incident involving a Specialist Operations officer happened last week in north Wales.
Police said the shot damaged the floor of the vehicle but did not injure either of the officers inside.
The officer involved has been removed from firearms duty while the incident is investigated.
