Residents of the village, known for being the home of fictional character Bridget Jones' parents, took to Facebook to say they had seen lots of party-goers and several police vehicles.

However, the rave never got going because police were already on the scene.

A police spokesman said people started arriving at about 11pm on Saturday, January 18, at the woods in Brigstock Road, Grafton Underwood, which is where the disused airfield is.
