I would like to reassure the local community and visitors to Legoland that such offences are extremely rare and that we are working closely with Legoland to identify the suspect.

Our team members acted swiftly and the Thames Valley Police were immediately called. The safety and security of the families enjoying a day out with us is our number one priority.
