Illegal music events

Alert message sent 22/06/2020 15:28:00

Information sent on behalf of West Mids Police


Dear Citizen ,

We are now responding to a national emerging trend of illegal music events ongoing across the UK.

As you may be aware, we have had a number of concerns around Sutton Park recently with anti social behaviour and littering, and would not want anybody thinking this could be a suitable venue for any illegal music events or gatherings.

Anyone who is found organising these kind of events faces the prospect of us seizing equipment and prosecution.
 
We are calling on the public to help us. If you have any intelligence or hear about an event taking place, please get in touch with us so we can prevent it and ultimately save lives. The key to stopping these events is early intelligence. 
 
An illegal rave near Lichfield in Staffordshire last weekend attracted several hundred people and saw police issue warnings to parents who were found dropping their children off to attend the event. Five people have been arrested in connection with being involved in the organisation of such event in Chasewater Staffordshire.
 
There are no safety measures in place at these unauthorised events. If anything goes wrong and you, or your son or daughter, are attending, the emergency services might not be able to help you as quickly as normal.
 
The illegal rave in Manchester not only ended in one man dead, but another stabbed and there was a report of a serious sexual offence against a woman. These are not safe events and parents should be actively deterring their children from attending.
 
Everyone needs to act responsibly to keep our communities safe.
 
If you suspect a rave or illegal gathering is being organised or there is suspicious activity, contact us on Live Chat via our website or call 101. 

Kindest regards

Sgt Heather Jones
Sutton Vesey Neighbourhood Team
