Fans flock, flags flap at royal wedding locale

LONDON (AP) - Flags are going up, cleaning crews are scrubbing down and two diehard fans are already camping out in London four days ahead of the royal wedding.
Westminster Abbey is ground zero for Britain's royal wedding frenzy. Workers were putting up flags near the abbey Tuesday and cleanup crews were putting the finishing touches in place. Security forces are also inspecting the area.
Large temporary media structures have gone up around the abbey to offer standing room for the thousands of journalists expected in London to witness Friday's nuptials between Prince William and Kate Middleton.
Officials say there will also be a military rehearsal, with troops in full ceremonial uniform taking to the streets late into the night to practice their moves.
