Suffolk Police have been trying to break up an illegal rave in Blundeston in North Suffolk this morning.

Members of the public contacted police at around 1.40am , Sunday 7 April 2013, after a number of vehicles were seen entering land off Flixton Marsh Lane in Blundeston. Officers attended and were able to contain the area to prevent further persons entering. Around 150 people were believed to be in attendance and vehicles have been leaving the site since around 6am.

Officers are currently on site working to get music turned off and people off the site safely, and identify the organisers.

Superintendent Jon Dodman said: "The action taken to disrupt this event falls in line with our zero-tolerance approach to illegal raves, which are potentially dangerous and cause unnecessary damage and disruption.

"The conditions in Blundeston have made for a particularly challenging night for officers who have been working since the early hours to prevent access to the site and minimise the risk to those already in attendance, as well as disruption to the local community.

"We acknowledge that residents have been disturbed by the amplified music and we will seek to take further action against those involved."
