Mounted police patrol Berkshire area after burglaries

Mounted police were drafted in to help patrol Berkshire following a recent spate of burglaries.

The mounted officers were deployed in Finchampstead in Wokingham on Thursday.

A police spokesman said the area "has had a number of daytime burglaries and some anti-social behaviour during the daytime over the past two weeks".

He added: "The mounted police provide a high-visibility presence that deters criminals and provides reassurance to the residents."
