Watch out for illegal raves


The public are being warned to be on the lookout for illegal raves this bank holiday weekend.

Northants Police urged people to be vigilant if they spot any suspicious activity. The police are reliant on information from the public, noticing the signs of a planned rave or letting them know when one is in progress.

Supt Andy Cox, head of the county operational command unit, said: “We can nip illegal raves in the bud and stop them from taking place if we have reliable information about something which is likely to be taking place.

“We will have extra police officers on duty throughout the weekend ready to respond to any information we receive about a rave taking place.”

He asked people to let police know if they see anything out of the ordinary in their community.

Signs to be on the look out for include posters advertising the rave, locks or bolts cropped off gates, people in vehicles stopping to look in a field, and flattened or disturbed hedgerows.
