London prepares for nearly one million spectators on wedding day

How will police keep safe the nearly one million spectators who will be lining the London streets on Friday for the Royal Wedding?

Roy Ramm, former commander of specialist operations at New Scotland Yard, shares how security is preparing for the big day, how the weather will affect screenings, and how they will react if a disruption occurs.

The planning, Ramm tells AM's Kiran Chetry, has been going on for months. He explains the precautions taken and who police have already pre-screened as potential disruptors.

    Enough already. Is it over yet? I am so sick of hearing about "the Royal Wedding". There is only one King I serve, and he is not here on earth. Kate and William are human just as you and I. Read the old testament. There have been many kings throughout history that have risen to power, only to fall. Get off this "royal wedding" bandwagon. I am so sick of it.

    It will be seriously REMISS of you if you do not do a story on this Queen's Household Cavalry Mounted Regiment's trooper Denton John.
