Police in Norfolk and Suffolk have launched a crack down on illegal raves over the Bank Holiday weekend. They're calling on members of the public and landowners across the two counties to report any suspicious activity.
Warnings are also being issued to anyone organising an illegal rave that any sound equipment found will be seized, causing significant financial loss to organisers, and that they will be prosecuted.
Police would like information on the following:
- Any information that an illegal rave is taking place
- Any sightings of vans, lorries or large numbers of vehicles gathering near woods, rural car parks or near to disused buildings/warehouse
- Sightings of fliers advertising raves
- Broken padlocks on access gates, to areas where a rave may take place.
The police say extra patrols are being planned to prevent illegal raves from taking place and intelligence and social networking sites will be monitored to enable early preventative action to be taken.
