Superintendent Sarah Grahame, tactical commander for the Regatta, said: “The number of arrests represents a very small minority of attendees.

"We have had another successful year policing Henley Royal Regatta. The work of officers, event organisers and partner agencies has ensured a safe and enjoyable event for the vast majority of those who took part and attended."
