Swift UVOT team.

The Swift/UVOT began observing the field of long duration GRB 061025 
around ~1.5 hours after the INTEGRAL trigger at 18:35:50 UT on October 25 
(Mereghetti et al., GCN 5751). We do not find any source in the co-added 
UVOT observations within the XRT position reported by Mineo et al. (GCN 

Following are the 3-sigma magnitude upper limits from the observations.

UVW2      11150      39494      3524          22.4

T_start and T_stop are calculated from the time of the burst. The upper 
limits are not corrected for Galactic extinction E(B-V) = 0.047 mag along
the line of sight to the burst.
