A "rave" at a Telford park which attracted nearly 70 people was shutdown by police over the weekend.
Police officers shut down the party at Granville Park, Muxton on Saturday evening despite the coronavirus lockdown.
We are attending a mass gathering/rave at the Granville park. I'm told 70 people here! We have worked so hard and sacrificed so much and this group decide it doesn't apply. I'm shocked that people would care so little. #hangYourHeadsInShame pic.twitter.com/VygsMcjLyF— Telford Cops (@TelfordCops) May 16, 2020
on Twitter, Telford Cops said: "We don't fine unless there is no other action open. We engage and explain. We asked the group to disperse and they did. We would ask anyone who is thinking of organizing one of these events to think of the bigger picture.
"They had a DJ set up and appears to be pre planned. We dispersed them for now. The image is of a few leaving. I couldn't take pictures of them close up as we dont name and shame."
One person who attended the rave told an officer it was because they were "sick of self-isolation".
