Officers from The News area were among the scores of emergency service personnel who offered their services in Windsor over the weekend.

It came as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle – who are now known as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex – married after months of waiting.

In a message shared with Hampshire and Thames Valley Police, officers from Portsmouth said: ‘Enjoyed the event, was great to work alongside colleagues from other #Police services as well as all those volunteers to make the occasion such a success for all.’
