Police have confirmed two people have been arrested after an illegal music event took place in the Bow Brickhill area of Milton Keynes.

Two arrests were made in the wake of the event. They were of a man, aged 18 from Suffolk and a woman, aged 19 from Bedfordshire, who were arrested on suspicion of drug driving and are both currently in custody.

Police acted after receiving a report of an illegal, unlicensed music event taking place on land off Church Road in Bow Brickhil at around 12.40am on Sunday morning (19/05).

Officers attended the event and engaged with those present to prevent disorder and maintain the safety of those attending. Police then intervened and the event was closed down. Police also confirmed no equipment was seized from the event.

Superintendent Tim Metcalfe said, “Illegal unlicensed music events are dangerous and there can be little regard for public safety. It is very early in the season, but the response to this event shows that we will continue to deal with reports of such events robustly.

“If someone becomes aware of an unlicensed music event taking place or information about a planned rave, this should be reported either online or on 101.

“If it is an emergency, please call 999. It is an emergency when a crime is being committed, there is a risk of injury, or there is a risk of serious damage to property.”

Superintendent Metcalfe also praised local members of the public who informed police the event was taking place.

He said, “I would like to thank members of the public who called to inform us of this event and would also like to thank the local community for their support and patience”
