Police broke up an alleged ‘illegal rave’ in Bermondsey last week.
Officers from Southwark’s branch of the Met attended reports of an “illegal rave and Covid breaches” in Bermondsey’s Pages Walk on January 13.
They issued five fixed penalty notices under the Covid regulations and broke up the event. Two separate arrests were also made.
One of these were on suspicion of possessing an offensive weapon and the other on suspicion of Class A drug supply.
Under the coronavirus regulations, residents must stay at home unless they have a reasonable excuse to be in public.
This can include exercise, attending a doctor’s appointment or moving house, among other permitted activities.
