Bedmond party stopped by police
A party in Bedmond which was expected to see a turn out of 500 guests has been stopped by police.
Officers received information about the rave, which was due to take place on Friday, February 1, with 500 people expected to attend on private land.
After receiving information two warrants took place in Watford on January 23, where officers seized a large amount of nitrous oxide canisters.
Two men, both aged 21 from Watford, were arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to commit a public nuisance and are currently on police bail.
Police said previous events have caused considerable noise, nuisance and disruption for residents in surrounding areas.
Neighbourhood team inspector Robin Winder said: “The rave was expected to cause considerable disruption to the local area, creating noise and traffic disruption.
“We were also made aware that nitrous oxide was planned to be used at the rave and, although this is not illegal to take, it can be extremely dangerous and have fatal consequences when mis-used.
“The area has historically had raves in the past and I hope this sends a strong message to anyone involved in planning future events that we will use all our powers to pre-empt them and prevent them from occurring.”
