Police have broken up a rave in the Forest of Dean.

Officers were called to the Speculation Car Park near Lydbrook and Parkend.

Two arrests were made for drug driving and two vehicles were seized.

Sound equipment has been removed and officers closed a number of surrounding roads to prevent more people from attending.


In a statement, Gloucestershire Police say the road closures "were as a result of intelligence which had been developed and identified that many of those attending were from outside the county".

Officers want to thank the local community for their patience and reassure those living in the area that they understand how much of an impact an event like this can have.
