Our response to a rave in Lords Wood

Alert message sent 18/05/2020 14:51:00

Information sent on behalf of Hampshire Constabulary

On Friday 16 May, we responded to calls from the community regarding a ‘rave’ in a field in Lords Wood.

It was reported between 20-25 people were in attendance playing music and using disco lighting.

The reports came into us just before midnight. We attended the area and the group dispersed upon our arrival.

From the location, we seized sound system devices, speakers and a petrol generator, as well as some personal items left at the scene.

We want to thank the community for calling this into us so that we were able to respond swiftly.

Although people are now allowed to spend a lot more time outdoors, Government restrictions still apply and it is disappointing this group of people ignored the guidance and put themselves and others at risk infection during the current crisis.

We know the majority of people in Southampton want to follow the guidance to keep themselves and their families safe.

This shows you are the eyes and ears in your community. Thank you to those who phoned us about this gathering being organised.
