The Section 60 order temporarily allowed officers greater powers to stop and search people for items connected with violence in the area.

It ended at 2pm today (Monday)

Inspector John Braddy, based at Slough police station, said: “The Section 60 order that has been in place for the last 24 hours has now been lifted.

“Thank you to the local community for their co-operation whilst this was in place and I hope that the high visibility police patrols provided some reassurance to you.

“Although this order has now been lifted, I would issue a stark warning to anybody who feels that they can carry weapons, that our officers will still be able to apply their ordinary stop and search powers.

“This requires officers to have reasonable grounds of suspecting someone of carrying a weapon, controlled drug or any other tool to commit crime, and can and will be conducted if deemed necessary.”
