Strategic commander for the operation in Windsor, Assistant Chief Constable Christian Bunt, said: “My thanks go to every single member of my team and our partners who have contributed to ensuring this iconic concert was an enjoyable event for all. 

“While it is an honour for us to be involved in this operation to mark Their Majesties’ Coronation, it has only been possible because of so many people’s hard work and dedication. 

“My priority throughout has been to ensure the public’s safety and provide an effective and proportionate policing response, which I believe we have achieved. 

“I would like to thank concert-goers as well as residents, business owners and the thousands of visitors to Windsor this weekend for their cooperation. 

“There was no significant disruption or incidents, and no protest activity took place in Windsor today.

"My officers have commented on how many positive interactions they've had with residents and visitors in the town which has made for such a lovely, celebratory atmosphere in Windsor today.”
