Police today reinforced their zero tolerance to raves in Norfolk after shutting down a small event at Methwold, near Thetford.

Officers found a gathering of vehicles and about 20 people with music playing on land off Fire Ride 59 at 6.50am today.

The group followed orders to leave the site and the party was closed down within 30 minutes.

Chief Insp Kevin Clarke said: “Whilst this was a relatively small gathering, our message is clear that we will not tolerate unlicensed music events on any scale and will seek to disrupt them whenever possible. The gathering was illegal and on private land but those who were asked to leave did so without fuss.”
