A rave of around 30 people at a warehouse in Warboys was broken up by police and one man arrested on Saturday (July 4).

Officers were called to the scene at the farm on Church Road at 10.23pm.

The force’s Rural Crime Action Team attended and road closures were put in place to prevent more people from gathering.

On arrival, music equipment was seized and a group of between 20 to 30 people were dispersed.

One man aged in his 30s, from Huntingdon, was arrested at the scene.

He was subsequently released with no further action in relation to causing a public nuisance and aggravated trespass, but was released under investigation in connection with obstructing a police constable.

Chief Inspector Chris Savage, said: “This unlicensed event was thwarted thanks to information from the public and the quick actions of officers who were on patrol to help manage the safe reopening of pubs and restaurants across the county.

“The event was held in a very rural location, with many attendees aged in their teens, so I am pleased we were able to attend and safely bring it to an end.

“Whilst the global pandemic continues, we will continue to do all that we can to discourage large groups from gathering in order to help stop the spread of coronavirus.”

Anyone with information in relation to this incident is encouraged to contact police on 101 quoting incident 522 of July 4.
