Ascot: A case study in opportunistic theft

At 9:33pm a grey, older model E-Class Mercedes pulled into the long layby opposite Queenswick. Two men got out of the car and to a parked red Ford estate Ford, walking around it and looking inside, with a torch.

They walked further up the layby, in the direction of cars parked opposite the old Little Chef building.

At 9:37 pm, the two men were seen checking windows and doors and looking through a large front window, shining a torch inside.

One man is described as white, bigger in build, possibly 5ft 11 or taller, wearing a white crew-neck t-shirt and dark shorts with a lighter stripe down the side, trainers and holding a pair of gloves. He appeared to have short dark hair, slightly receding at the temples.

The other man was white, slightly shorter, possibly 5ft 6in or taller, much thinner and wearing a tracksuit. He was wearing Nike trainers and dark gloves.

Both men were wearing face masks, covering the lower portion of their faces.

The Security Team from the Main Estate at Tittenhurst Park headed over to investigate. The men pulled out of the layby at speed at 9:43pm.

No crime reported in Old Windsor, Eton and Eton Wick, Sunningdale, and Sunninghill.
