Security fears for Prince George's new school as woman claims she freely walked in

Locals are concerned that the Prince's presence will make the area a target for attacks.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s eldest son, Prince George, is set to start school in just a few days and all eyes are on the royal's new school, Thomas's London Day School.
With the exciting news of another royal baby on the way, concerns are being raised about the security of Prince George and Princess Charlotte.
One woman took her concerns to the next level, testing the level of security at George's new school and was shocked at what she found.
The woman, Sarah Burnett-Moore, 54, filmed herself walking "freely" into the school without anyone stopping her.
Speaking to The Daily Telegraph, Sarah Burnett-Moore said: "I could have walked in with an IED and set it to go off on Thursday.
"I live just 200 metres from the school, and myself and lots of neighbours are worried about the security implications as the Prince's presence will make the area a target for attacks."
The school is closed for the Summer, but Sarah still can not believe how easy it was to make her way into the premises.

In an announcement in March, the Palace confirmed Prince George, would be attending Thomas’s Battersea School in London.
“Their Royal Highnesses are delighted to have found a school where they are confident George will have a happy and successful start to his education,” the palace said in a statement.
The school is one of four family-run schools in London and despite the school boasting a location just a stone’s throw from their royal residence, Prince William and Duchess Catherine have opted for the middle-class, south west London branch.

The £6,385-a-term (approximately $AUD10,471) school currently has 544 day pupils, aged between four and 13.
Upholding a set of core values - kindness, courtesy, confidence, humility and learning to be givers, not takers - the elite school holds an impressive record of senior school entrance and scholarship successes. In fact, the Tatler Schools Guide says the "cream of the Battersea crop rises to the likes of Eton and Wycombe Abbey".
The school’s extensive grounds also include a kindergarten, which Princess Charlotte, 22-months, is expected to attend.
