Volunteer 'Street Angels' will be supporting police and helping worse for wear punters around Royal Ascot this week.
The team was out in High Street last night and will be at the event tonight and tomorrow night keeping an eye on the revellers around pubs and bars in the area.
Police Community Support Officer (PCSO) David Bullock, who formed the group with Churches Together in Windsor in 2012, said: “With Ascot being busier than usual with large crowds attending Royal Ascot today and over the next few days, local pubs and other licensed premises will be busy following the races.
"The role of the Angels is to primarily provide reassurance to members of the public and support to those that are vulnerable including those that are intoxicated.
"They will be able to hand out water and in some cases support people to a taxi if need be. They will provide flip-flops to prevent people walking in bare feet which could lead to injuries.
"The Angels, who will be in uniform, will liaise with the emergency services where appropriate and provide basic first aid if it is needed.”
Superintendent Steve Hockin, Silver commander for Royal Ascot week, said: “I am delighted to have the support of Street Angels over the next few evenings as their presence will help support our policing objectives.”
