NORFOLK Police issued a fresh warning today that it will take a zero-tolerance approach to anyone planning to organise an illegal rave in the county.

And members of the public are urged to play their part and support police action by remaining vigilant over the coming weeks by reporting any suspicious activity which may lead them to believe a rave is being organised.

Inspector Nick Cheshire said: “Whilst we continue to work with the organisers of licensed musical events, I want to make it quite clear that we will use all necessary resources to prevent, disrupt and close down illegal raves in this county.

“We will continue to take a hard line against the people behind these events. We shall prosecute and seize and destroy the equipment of anyone found to be involved in their organisation.”

Police across the county have been working very closely with landowners, the Forestry Commission and Farmwatch to offer security advice and ensure they contact the police at the earliest opportunity with information. Landowners are also being reminded to ensure the entrances to their property are secure and also to report any breaches suspected of being linked to a potential rave to police.

Anyone with information about an illegal rave or witness to suspicious activity on farmland or in buildings should contact Norfolk Police on 0845 456 4567.
