Police have handcuffed a woman at the Royal Ascot after just two days in to the horse racing festival. 

Two officers were pictured escorting a racegoer in handcuffs this morning before the first of today’s races at 2:30pm had even begun. 

The woman can be seen wearing a yellow floral summer dress, a black fascinator hat and black wedge heels. 

One officer was pictured holding the woman’s left arm while another officer, carrying a medic bag, walks beside them. 

The woman appears to have been arrested, although this has not been confirmed by police and it is not yet clear what the woman had done wrong. 

Police have handcuffed a woman at the Royal Ascot after only just two days in to the horse racing festival

This young woman, who perhaps couldn’t face the journey home barefoot was carried out of the racecourse on Day One of Royal Ascot yesterday

The photo was taken on the morning of the second day of the horse racing festival which runs until June 24.

Yesterday, pictures also captured a number of revellers looking a bit worse for wear as the first day of the festival wrapped up. 

Racegoers dressed in all their finery were spotted stocking up on evening snacks, taking some time out with a cigarette and having a little lie-down on the pavement.

However for some, the party looked set to go on all night as they were spotted carrying drinks as the sun set on the Berkshire racecourse.

Some well-dressed ladies among the stylish guests were spotted taking a stoop on the kerb to change out of their heels and into their flat shoes before making the journey back home.

And for one reveller, the walk back home was a little too much to bear – so her strapping pal instead hurled her over his shoulders.

The exhausted revellers made their way home after a thrilling first day of Royal Ascot 2023, where racegoers put their best feet forward in stunning outfits to enjoy the day.

And the festival was given the royal touch as members of the royal family arrived and took part in a procession in King Charles’s first as Monarch.

MailOnline have contacted Thames Valley Police for comment.
