POLICE are conducting a review of a theme park's CCTV after a vicious assault on a woman in her late 50s by two teenagers.  

The woman was attacked at Legoland Windsor in Winkfield Road at 4.30pm last Friday when she was in the Heartlake Mall – which sells Lego souvenirs to families.

She suffered injuries to her head and hands and was taken to hospital for treatment.

Two white boys believed to be about 14 were involved in the attack.

It is understood the victim may have spoken to the boys about their unacceptable behaviour, leading to the brutal response.

A spokesman for Legoland said: “On Friday, August 4 an incident took place in one of our retail shops at the Legoland Windsor resort.

“Our team responded immediately to help the guest who was taken to hospital as a precaution. Thames Valley Police were called.

“We are pleased that the guest has since returned home.

“The safety and security of our guests is our number one priority and we are shocked and saddened that this has happened.

“We have a zero tolerance policy to this type of behaviour at the Legoland Windsor Resort and we are working closely with Thames Valley Police.”

She said that police had been given full access to the theme park’s CCTV system.

No arrests have yet been made as we went to press, but police are appealing for any witnesses who may have seen the attack, particularly if they have information about the two teenage boys.

Anyone who can help is asked to call 101 quoting reference ‘43170231022’, or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
