Bridgwater man arrested over illegal rave

TWO more people – including a 22-year-old man from Bridgwater – have been arrested in connection with an illegal rave at the former Charmy Down airfield near Bath last summer.

Both were arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to cause a public nuisance and have been released under investigation so further enquiries can take place.

This brings the total number of people arrested in connection with the investigation to 12, with three others interviewed voluntarily.

A police spokesperson said: “The event caused widespread disruption overnight on Saturday, July 18 into the following day. Enquiries are ongoing and we are still appealing for anyone with information which could assist our inquiry to contact us on 101, giving the call handler the reference number 5220160383.

“We also want to continue to urge the public to look out for the signs of unlicensed music events setting up, so we can stop these events before they start.

“The signs can include:

  • promotion on social media
  • vans unloading sound equipment
  • more and more people gathering

“If you see anything suspicious call 101 straight away with as much information as you can about the people and vehicles involved.

“Officers especially urge farmers and landowners (urban or rural) to review their security measures – you can contact your neighbourhood team for advice on 101.”
