Police had to break up a drum ‘n’ bass rave on the London Underground

A “fully-fledged” drum ‘n’ bass rave on the London Underground had to be broken up by police last night.
Featuring a soundsystem, lights and a DJ, the Bakerloo line shindig was hosted by MC Harry Shotta in front of a number of revelers around 10pm on Monday night.
Not all commuters were impressed with the “live rap”, though, and tweeted their displeasure.
Hi Dominic, @bakerlooline can you please let me know why there’s some live rap performance holding up trains and keeping me from my PJs?
After being called to Regents Park station where the train was stopped, British Transport Police said the organisers were lighthearted and co-operative when asked to turn the music off.
A spokesman for BTP said: “Officers attended and spoke with a man who agreed to turn off the speakers and the light systems, they then left the station.
“While officers relish any opportunity to experience underground drum ‘n’ bass, we’d kindly ask DJs to refrain from using the Tube as a pop-up club.
“It may be the Easter holiday, but there is a time and a place and we’d ask everyone to consider other passengers using the network.”
The incident appears to have been orchestrated by the pranksters group Trollstation, with group member DiscoBoy tweeting: “Put a full sound and light system on the London Underground tonight. It looked mental featuring a very well known d’n’b mc.”
