Streaker arrest details - 27-year-old man held

Thames Valley Police has arrested a 27-year-old man in connection with an incident at the Torch Relay in Henley this morning. The man, from Henley, was arrested on suspicion of outraging public decency after he ran naked near to the Torch Relay. He has been taken to a police station in Oxfordshire.

Assistant Chief Constable John Campbell, overseeing the Torch Relay policing operation, said: “This was an isolated incident that was quickly dealt with by police officers and thankfully did not disrupt the Torch Relay as it passed through Henley.

"The Torch Relay events of yesterday and today have been attended by thousands of people who lined the routes through towns and villages and seemed to have really enjoyed this once in a lifetime experience and we have every confidence that this will continue."
