Police urge public to 'keep an eye out' for illegal raves

Northamptonshire Police has asked the public to 'keep an eye out' for illegal raves during the Bank Holiday weekend.

They are warning such events could lead to a spike in antisocial behaviour in normally quiet rural communities.

The force says raves can be more difficult to clear once they have started, so it is vital that people report any concerns as soon as possible.

“In many cases those people who are looking to set-up a rave will visit the proposed site a couple of days before the event and I would urge anyone who spots any suspicious activity in their village, along a country road or around farmland to let us know.”

– Northamptonshire Police spokesperson
