So far one arrest has been made in the case, Thames Valley Police hasn’t named or charged that person at this stage.

South Central Ambulance paramedics were first to the incident, Thames Valley Police set up a crimewatch outside Magic Cuts on New Street soon after, which remained in place overnight.

The Section 60 doesn’t cover the entirety of Aylesbury, the following areas are active stop and search zones:

The first area under a Section 60 order

Buckingham Park Estate, within the boundary of Prince Rupert Drive to the south, the A413 to the east, Martin Dalby Way to the north and Peacock Lane and Beeston Lane to the east. Aylesbury town centre, within the boundary of the A4157 to the north and east and the A41 to the south and west.

Superintendent Rebecca Mears, Local Police Area Commander for Aylesbury Vale, said: “I have authorised an extension to the Section 60 to reduce any further serious violence being carried out and target those who maybe seeking to carry weapons.

“The order will cover the area shown in the maps and a further review will be carried out tomorrow.
