POLICE adopted a more “friendly” style for managing the public during this year’s Henley Royal Regatta.
This meant allowing door staff at town centre venues to control the queues rather than police officers becoming involved.
There were also fewer section 35 orders for antisocial behaviour given out.
On Saturday night one man was banned from the town centre, the towpath and the regatta site for 48 hours for throwing a slice of pizza at a car in Bell Street. He left by taxi.
