(STSCI) report:

  We have observed GRB 130610A  (Cummings et al., GCN 14842) with UVES
on the ESO-VLT, in Rapid Response Mode. Preliminary analysis of the 
automatically
reduced spectra reveals the presence of an absorption line system at z ~ 
2.092
including a damped Ly-alpha line, CIV 1548 &1550, SiIV 1393 & 1402, SiII 
1260 & 1526
FeII 1608, 2382, 2600, AlII1670, AlIII 1854 & 1862. This absorption line 
system
can be identified with the gamma-ray burst redshift.

We are grateful to the excellent support provided by Christophe Martayan
and Felipe Gaete.
