Northamptonshire rave village sealed off by police

A village in Northamptonshire was sealed off overnight to allow officers to break up an illegal rave.

Police were called to Kilsby, near Daventry, after residents reported hearing loud music.

A police spokesman said an "effective containment" was put in place around farmland and the village, to prevent more people arriving at the rave.

Officers broke up the event, made arrests and seized vehicles and sound equipment, he added.

On Friday Northamptonshire Police appealed to the public to help stop illegal raves over the Easter bank holiday.
