M. De Pasquale (UCL-MSSL) and M.G. Bernardini (INAF/OAB)
report on behalf of the Swift/UVOT team:

The Swift/UVOT began settled observations of the field of GRB 150710A
54 s after the BAT trigger (Bernardini et al., GCN Circ. 18000).
No optical afterglow consistent with the position of the XRT sources
(Bernardini et al., GCN Circ 18005) is detected in the initial UVOT 
exposures.
Preliminary 3-sigma upper limits using the UVOT photometric system
(Breeveld et al. 2011, AIP Conf. Proc. 1358, 373) for the first
finding chart (FC) exposure and subsequent exposures are:

The magnitudes in the table are not corrected for the Galactic extinction
due to the reddening of E(B-V) = 0.03 in the direction of the burst
(Schlegel et al. 1998).
