BERKSHIRE Breaking Windsor

Following the announcement of the death of His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh, Thames Valley Police is carrying out high visibility patrols in Windsor



Local residents, businesses and visitors will notice an increased police presence, including armed officers, in Windsor during this national time of mourning.


Windsor Castle is a primary Royal residency and we are expecting the town to be busier than normal, as people come to pay their respects.


Additional officers will be patrolling the town centre along with the surrounding area to help provide reassurance and keep local residents, businesses and visitors safe at this sad time.


Our officers will be engaging with members of the public and are on hand to answer questions.

Inspector Matt Lugg, who is co-ordinating the patrols, said: “We are expecting an increase of people in Windsor over the coming days and so these patrols are all part of our measures to ensure public health and safety during this time of national mourning.


“We would remind people remain vigilant and if they have any concerns or questions to approach us.”
