Four arrests in police rave swoop

A rave in Norfolk, attended by about 100 people, was disrupted by police almost as soon as it had begun.

Officers were called to Roydon Common in King's Lynn early on Monday and officers were able to identify key organisers and seize sound equipment.

Four people were arrested and released on bail while investigations continue.

"The message we want to put across is that we take robust action to deter and prosecute organisers and people at these events," Supt Nick Davison said.

"Raves cause a lot of distress to local residents, businesses, wildlife and habitats. Norfolk Constabulary is committed to finding as many avenues as possible to tackle this problem."
