A security alert has taken place at Windsor Castle after a group of people were seen acting suspiciously.

Thames Valley Police deployed officers to the Queen's Berkshire residence at 0950 GMT after a member of the public raised the alarm.

"Four people were seen acting suspiciously on the outskirts of the castle," a Thames Valley Police spokeswoman said.

"Officers were deployed but no trace of anyone was found," she added.

After an extensive search the operation was called off, she said.
