Police investigate hate comments on Legoland Facebook page

Legoland Windsor

As we have previously reported, the spate of hate-filled comments posted on the Legoland Windsor Facebook page by English Defence League and Casuals United supporters, in response to the park being hired out to a Muslim organisation, led to the page being taken down. It is now back up, and features the following statement from Legoland:

Hi everyone, we’re back!

We are so sorry we had to remove our page for a couple of days. The removal of the page was requested by the Thames Valley Police as an investigation is currently underway to identify those responsible for some of our wall posts, private messages, phone calls and emails.

Anyone posting or thinking of posting offensive and threatening messages on this page or other social media sites should be aware that the Thames Valley Police are monitoring the situation closely and we will not hesitate to take robust and swift action against anyone engaging in this type of activity.

The Social Media and Customer Services team very much look forward to getting back to sharing all our exciting updates before we open on the 14th March!
