P.A. Evans (U. Leicester) reports on behalf of the Swift-XRT team:

Using 1.9 ks of promptly downlinked XRT event data for GRB 160525B, we
find an enhanced XRT position of the afterglow: RA, Dec: 149.3845,
51.2064 which is equivalent to:
   RA (J2000)  = 09 57 32.28
   Dec (J2000) = +51 12 23.0
with an uncertainty of 2.1 arcseconds (radius, 90% confidence).
Analysis of the promptly available data is online at

Position enhancement is is described by Goad et al. (2007, A&A, 476,
1401) and Evans et al. (2009, MNRAS, 397, 1177).
