Police in Bristol have released video footage of the moment they broke up a drum and bass house party.
Officers were called to the party at a house in Tyndalls Park Road in Clifton on the evening of 29 January.

It was one of more than a dozen house parties police were called to over the weekend, including a gathering of more than 30 people at a house in Ashgrove Road.

Four people found at a house party in Shrubbery Avenue, Weston-super-Mare

Inspector Ruth Gawler said: “Millions of people across the country are diligently following the rules and making huge sacrifices to limit the spread of coronavirus.
“Yet there is clearly a selfish minority who seem to think the rules don’t apply to them and they can go about their lives as normal.
“We will not stand by and let these irresponsible few break the rules in this egregious manner and we will give them severe penalties.”
