Windsor’s ‘no-fly zone’


A NO-FLY zone could be placed over Windsor Castle as part of a security review, the Metropolit­an Police has said.

The force has made an applicatio­n for the restricted airspace order. If successful, aircraft would be prevented from flying up to 2,500ft above and 1.5 miles around the castle.

On Christmas Day, a 19-year-old man armed with a crossbow was found in the castle grounds. He has since been sectioned under the Mental Health Act.

Police said the order would ‘further enhance the security at what is an iconic location and keep the community living nearby safe’.

They added that the zone was applied for as part of an ongoing review into security arrangemen­ts, not because of any specific threat or intelligen­ce.
