Lincolnshire: Police warning over illegal raves


Landowners and residents in rural communities are being urged to be vigilant and report suspicious activity in relation to raves.

Lincolnshire Police said the county’s isolated locations make it a popular county for people trying to organise such events and, in recent months, there has been an increase in the number of reports of unauthorised gatherings, or raves, being set up in farm buildings.

Landowners are being asked to take all security precautions where possible to protect buildings, whether this be installing PIR beams, internal sounders or adding barriers across farm tracks.

Anyone who sees any convoys of motor vehicles heading towards farm buildings or parking up in the nearby vicinity of a farm building, or who hears any loud music being played, is asked to contact Lincolnshire Police on 101.

Alternatively call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
