Villagers are fuming about being kept awake by a three-day rave

Let’s face it, illegal raves are never going to end. Especially if police are struggling to shut them down.

It happened again last week as a party was allowed to carry on in Salisbury, Wiltshire, despite residents from numerous villages kicking off about it.

local report said “loud dance music” started on Friday night and rolled on until the early hours of Monday morning. That’s despite Wiltshire Police, Hampshire Police, Wiltshire Council and Test Valley Borough Council all being called.

One resident said there were “hundreds, if not thousands of revellers”, but Wiltshire Police claimed there was nothing untoward when it turned up at the scene in the early hours of Saturday morning.

“Patrols were carried out in the area before 5am and the area was all closed up and music off. We received another call at 7.30pm the same day reporting loud music at the site. Officers attended and this was a private function, no alcohol being served. Music was turned down and all in order. No offences committed.”

The event took place at Dean Hill Park, a rural business park which used to be a Ministry Of Defence munitions store.

A worker for the owner’s of the park refuted claims that it was a rave, insisting it was a “private birthday party”.

Rave or not, ratings to the three-day stamina crew!
