- Parents at the school said they repeatedly requested increased security
- The breach could have admitted terrorists or paedophiles, a mother said
- ‘Paying 20,000 a year to send a child there, you expect better,’ a parent said
A school that Royals attend on the grounds of Windsor Castle suffered a security breach yesterday when an intruder gained access while pretending to be a parent. An unknown woman was seen with pupils at St George’s School during an open morning at the exclusive 7,000-a-term establishment. After the incident, parents said that they had repeatedly requested increased security at the school but their pleas were seemingly ignored.

‘It’s shocking she could get in so easily it could have been a kidnapper, terrorist, paedophile or anything . Lessons will have to be learned . Parents will not let this lie.’

Guilty plea: Anthony Brailsford, 69, admitted repeatedly rubbing a young boy s buttocks Another parent said: ‘This highlights an alarming lack of security . Paying 20,000 a year to send a child there, you expect better.’
Headmaster Chris McDade confirmed to The Sun that the intruder was escorted out by staff and police were investigating the incident. Princess Eugenie is a past pupil of the school and Prince Edward’s son and daughter currently attend there. Other pupils include the choristers of St George s chapel – a place of royal worship situated behind the school in the grounds of Windsor Castle.
The unisex day and boarding school takes pupils aged three years to 13 years. This is the second recent controversy to hit the school after a former headmaster admitted sexually assaulting boys in his Latin classes and watching others shower naked in the 1990’s. Anthony Brailsford, 69, who was acting headmaster of the school in Windsor Castle, Berkshire, admitted last year to repeatedly rubbing a young boy s buttocks.
He received a six-month suspended prison sentence in January at Reading Crown Court for the historic abuse.

A drunken hostel resident was caught on camera allegedly beating a security guard to death1 because the man was ‘drinking on duty’. The horrific incident was captured on CCTV 2in the foyer of a hostel in the Russian city of Severodvinsk. Police later arrested the 45-year-old resident who confronted the guard, 57, on his way from his room to the porch of the hostel for a cigarette.
Both men had reportedly been drinking but the resident was unhappy that the security guard was drinking in his office at the hostel when he was supposed to be on duty. The man gave the security guard a piece of his mind and then continued outside for a cigarette but the pair clashed again when he was on his way back to his room. The security guard is said to have told the younger man to mind his own business and the pair squared up to each other before the resident knocked out the guard with a single punch.

The resident then stamped four times on his rival’s head before standing back to survey the damage before kicking him in the side of the head. Video shows the attacker then looked into the guard’s room before checking his pockets and walking away. The footage of the violent attack has shocked viewers after it was posted on social media.

He has been charged with killing the security guard and faces a 15-year prison sentence if convicted. Severodvinsk is home to the main shipyard for the Russian Navy so access is restricted for foreigners. Visitors need a special pass to enter the city.

A farmer caught speeding has been jailed for claiming his dead neighbour was behind the wheel at the time.
At Plymouth Crown Court, Andrew George Evans, of Ludlow, was sentenced to six weeks after he pleaded guilty to perverting the course of justice by lying to police. The 48-year-old triggered a speed camera when he drove at 51mph in a 30mph zone in Plymouth on April 14. Having been sent a prosecution notice by Devon and Cornwall Police, Evans sent it back claiming his neighbour Ben Hughes had been driving at the time of the offence.
But when police tried to contact Mr Hughes they discovered he had died four-and-a-half months before the speeding offence had taken place.
Jailing Evans yesterday, Recorder Stephen Parish said
Evans was given every chance in his interview to tell the truth but dug himself deeper and deeper .
Mr Michael Green, for Evans, said Evans had no previous convictions and his sheep would need tending in his absence.
