Have your say

With the bank holiday weekend almost upon us Northamptonshire Police are reminding people to be on the lookout for illegal raves.

The force relies on information from the public when dealing with raves, either to be made aware one is happening, or to be informed of suspicious activity that could indicate one is being planned.

Raves can be disruptive in terms of noise and nuisance and can be more difficult to clear once they are established, so police are asking that people let them know if they are concerned about any suspicious activity.

PC Nick Price said: “We can nip illegal raves in the bud and stop them from taking place if we have reliable information about something which is likely to be taking place.

“Members of the public will usually ring us to complain about traffic movements and anti-social behaviour as people turn-up to the rave, but they can also help us by being alert to anything that is out of the ordinary in their community, no matter how trivial it may seem.

Members of the public can report suspicious activity via ‘Do it online’ button at www.northants.police.uk. Alternativley you can also call police on 101.
