Police respond to reports of unauthorised rave

Police are responding to reports of a rave in East Dorset after concern was raised by members of the public earlier this afternoon, Saturday 27 June 2015.

Officers have attended the unauthorised event and have seized amplification equipment in accordance with section 63 of the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act.

Superintendent Mark Callaghan of Dorset Police said: “Local residents were understandably concerned that this unauthorised and unlicensed event might cause ongoing disruption throughout the night and into the early hours of the morning.

“In the interests of safety for members of the public, including those in attendance and nearby road users, officers have acted by removing the amplification equipment. Anti-social behaviour will not be tolerated and I’d advise members of the public to make other plans if they were considering attendance at this event.”

Please note: in the interests of public safety, Dorset Police is not disclosing any further information about this event.
