Police successfully intervened and stopped an illegal rave taking place in Little Horwood last weekend.

Officers arrived at Salden Lane, Little Horwood at about 4.30pm on Saturday March 8, following reports of noise and congestion. Finding a gathering of 80 people and about 20 cars, they instructed the organisers of the unlicensed music event to leave the premises by 6pm.

The cars subsequently dispersed and left the site.

Insp James Davies said the local policing team will always seek to disrupt raves and prosecute the orgaisers.

He said: “Raves have a big impact on our rural communities, damaging crops, disrupting livestock and creating a noise nuisance.

“If you spot anyone suspicious who may be conducting early reconnaissance on rural land or even starting to set up an event, please report it on the Thames Valley Police non-emergency number, 101.”
