​Six arrested at 100-person rave in a pig shed in Norfolk

Six people have been arrested following the discovery of a 100-person illegal rave in a former pig shed in west Norfolk.

The unlicensed event took place on Saturday, June 18, off Mundford Road in Methwold, west Norfolk. Suspicious activity was reported to the police shortly before midnight, who then headed to the remote location at around 4:AM on Sunday morning.

Police discovered around 100 people at an illegal rave in a former pig shed, with music “played intermittently”, according to a statement from the Norfolk Police.

Music equipment was then seized and police vehicles were used to block entrances to stop more attendees from entering.

Local authorities arrested a man on the scene for breaching a court order, according to police. “A man aged in his 20s from Cambridgeshire was arrested at the scene for breaching a court order and taken to Wymondham Police Investigation.

“He was remanded into custody to appear in court at a later date,” reads a statement from Norfolk Police. Later that morning, police arrested five more people, one of which in his late teens.

Shortly after 11:AM on Sunday, June 19, police booked two men in their 30s, a man and a woman in their 20s, and a boy in his late teens.

All five were taken to King’s Lynn Police Investigation Centre for questioning, where the woman was later released under investigation and the four men released on bail.

Earlier this month, ravers took to another unusual location for a free party in Cornwall. Taking place in an abandoned airfield, the illegal event went ahead on the same site as a model aircraft show as it raged on for three days undetected.
