Police shutdown "rave" which attracted 70 people at Telford Park

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.

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".
