N. P. M. Kuin (UCL-MSSL) and J. Gropp (PSU) reports on behalf of the
Swift/UVOT team:

We report here the early Swift/UVOT photometry of GRB 211024B (Gropp et
al.,
GCN Circ. 30980; Zhu et al. GCN Circ. 30984; Lien et al. GCN Circ 30989;
Evans et al. GCN Circ 30994; Kann et al. GCN Circ. 30995) at the position
reported by Zhu et al. (GCN Circ. 30984).


Preliminary detections using the UVOT photometric system
(Breeveld et al. 2011, AIP Conf. Proc. 1358, 373) for the early exposures
are:
