Officers patrolling the surround areas of Thetford Forest discovered an illegal rave on August 19, but ravers were allowed to continue.
Police didnt stop the rave “due to its distance from any residential areas it was not causing a disturbance.”
Though a successful rave by most accounts, it didn’t come without sparking controversy, as ravers were criticised by locals,claiming the ravers leave trash after rave, and there are fire damage, excrement in areas used by the public and disruption to a schedule one breeding area. It’s been demonstrated that ravers can be respectful and many ravers often return to party sites to clean up their mess.
Police have been taking extra care this summer to ensure illegal raves are stamped down, with Gwent Police in Wales even putting together a guide on how to stop illegal raves, but then you think about it, illegal raves are part of rave culture in the UK…
