Arrests after forest rave in disused home near Thetford

Six people have been arrested and sound equipment seized after police broke up an illegal rave in a forest clearing near the Norfolk/Suffolk border.

Police monitored the party in a boarded up holiday home at Two Mile Bottom, near Thetford, from the early hours.

They turned away a number of people who had been trying to get to the secluded site in an area of forest land.

At the height of Saturday's event there were believed to have been about 150 people attending, police said.

"No complaints were made in relation to noise nuisance and the nearest dwelling was around half a mile away," Supt Nick Davison said.

"Police take such incidents very seriously and will act to deal with anyone intent on causing disruption and nuisance within our communities.

"Such events are unsafe and we will continue to prosecute and seize and destroy the equipment of anyone found to be involved."

Those arrested are suspected of theft, burglary, being unfit to drive, causing criminal damage and organising an unlicensed music event.
