While most of the arrests were from the Bristol and South Gloucestershire area, three people arrested gave police addresses from Devon, Oxfordshire and Derbyshire.

Detectives are now seeking the public’s help to identify 38 people in connection with their enquiries into what happened at the event.

Detective Superintendant Lisa Simpson said: "The event we know drew party goers from outside of the Constabulary area.

"So whilst we have identified people who are known to police officers here, there are people who have probably come from other regions, that might be well know but from outside our force area."

Officers have also revealed two people who attended the rave tested positive for Covid-19.
