POLICE disrupted an illegal rave on Dartmoor last weekend.
Police received reports of noise from a man camping on Dartmoor during the early hours of Sunday morning.
He was with a team who were in training for the Ten Tors challenge and they noticed a number of vehicles arrived at Homing Beam, near Princetown.
Police attended the call and found “up to 50 young people” who had gathered for an illegal rave.
Police said officers contained the area and a number of other people were turned away from the site.
After consultation, the organisers agreed to shut down the event and everyone left the site without incident within two hours.
A police spokesman said: “This was a swift response from local officers to minimise any disruption and damage to the moor.
“This reinforces the message that Devon and Cornwall Police take a zero tolerance attitude to this type of activity and will take action.”
