Yesterday (April 1), an updated post by police said that fewer people were around in the town centre, and that a homeless man had been located to be housed.

Posting on TVP Reading's Facebook page, a statement said: "Chief Inspector Ash Smith out on patrol with PC Simon Wheeler in Reading Town Centre.

"A very small number of people out and about, which is great to see. One homeless male has been located, and is just about to be housed, so that's great news.

"Please listen to the government's advice. #StayHomeSaveLives #COVID19."

A post by the force of Twitter also showed police patrolling in an empty-looking West Reading.

The tweet reads: "West Reading NH team took a long walk yesterday and covered some of the parks/open spaces.

"Whilst on patrol, they maintained the government's #SocialDistancing regulations + helped to inform the public of the guidelines...even the geese cooperated!"
