Brechfa rave: Locals urged not to ‘take matters into their own hands’

Published

on

POLICE currently monitoring a large gathering in the Brechfa area have urged local residents to let them deal with the matter.

When Dyfed-Powys Police became aware of the illegal rave in the early hours of Sunday morning, the event was already well under way.

Due to the number of people involved, and the safety concerns of breaking up an event of this size in a remote location, the decision was taken to prioritise disrupting and stopping any further people entering.

A spokesperson for Dyfed Powys Police said: “A police presence is being maintained today and the gathering is being closely monitored continuously, in order to minimise disruption to the local community. Officers are liaising with concerned residents in the area. The National Police Air Service also assisted this morning to gather further intelligence and evidence.

“This type of event causes considerable anxiety and distress to the community. There is little doubt that these types of events are very well planned, organised and that local knowledge is important in drawing down the main group to a particular ‘vulnerable’ field, or area of land.

“We assure local communities that appropriate action is being taken to disrupt and deal with this event, and we will robustly investigate any criminal offences discovered.

“We understand the strength of feelings in respect of this, but we urge locals not to take matters into their own hands, and let the police deal with it. We do not want potential attendees to the gathering to be under any illusions either – do not travel to the area as officers are there and you will be turned away.”
