Police seek help to stop Midhurst raves


POLICE in the Midhurst and Petworth area are asking people to be alert to stop illegal raves getting off the ground on bank holiday Monday (August 25).

Warning signs are the removal of locks from secured access points, vehicles, particularly panel vans or larger, driving off road, groups of vehicles congregating in rural areas and convoys of vehicles and loud music from remote woodland.

Any such activity should be reported on the Sussex Police non-emergency number 101 as soon as possible, quoting Operation Allegro.

A police spokesman said extra patrols would be mounted over the holiday weekend.

“By receiving early warnings we have a much better chance of disrupting the rave and dispersing those responsible for its organisation.

Information can be given by telephone to 101, email contact.centre@sussex.pnn.police.uk or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
