Police caught around 300 ravers in Gloucestershire’s Forest of Dean on Sunday, after an all-night party, as Mixmag reports.
Revellers joined the illegal rave on Saturday night and showed a “lack of respect” for the environment according to police officers who reported to the scene.
The gathering, which happened near Cinderford in the heritage cultural region of the Forest of Dean, was dispersed on Sunday morning after noise complaints from locals who could hear the loud music from “miles away”, reports Gloucestershire Live.
Police reportedly worked “through the night” on Saturday until Sunday afternoon, according to a spokesperson from the Gloucestershire Police. “Police were called to Staple-edge Woods, near Cinderford, late last night (Saturday 3 July) to reports of an event.”
“Officers want to thank the local community for their patience as the work continues to disperse the gathering and reassure those living in the area that they understand how much of an impact an event like this can have,” they continued.
