South Africans have been warned not to attempt to go to see Nelson Mandela's body in the capital, Pretoria, unless they are already in the queue.

The anti-apartheid leader's body is lying in state at the Union Buildings, where he was sworn in as South Africa's first black president in 1994.

Tens of thousands have been flocking to the venue to pay their respects.

Natalie Ridgard was one of the last people to view Mr Mandela's body and described her emotions.
