Revellers descend on Dorset village for illegal rave – BBC


An illegal rave saw about 1,000 revellers descend on a rural village in Dorset.
Police said "concerned and upset" residents in East Lulworth began reporting the huge party shortly after midnight amid complaints about noise.
Officers closed nearby roads to stop more people arriving and ordered anyone already attending the event to go home.
Dorset Police said it was appealing for witnesses and information.
Posting on Facebook, the force said: "We would like to send a direct message to those at the event, you are trespassing, please leave and go home immediately."
Deputy Chief Constable Sam de Reya said anyone found to have committed a criminal offence would be prosecuted.
She said officers wearing body cameras were carrying out vehicle checks while drones and a police helicopter had been deployed.
She added: "It will come as no surprise that emergency services are already busy on a beautiful sunny Easter weekend and such irresponsible behaviour is adding to the demand.
"As there are Army training sites in the area, those attending the event are potentially putting themselves in danger by crossing these locations.
"There is also an amber wildfire risk, and Dorset and Wiltshire Fire and Rescue are providing robust advice to not have open campfires or use barbecues in the open countryside."
Local councillor Cherry Brooks said she could hear the rave at her home in East Stoke, which is more than three miles (4.8km) away.
She said there were lots of cars parked in the area and she had heard a police helicopter flying low above the village.
"It has caused a lot of disruption. It's completely thoughtless," she said.
