Metropolitan Police closed an illegal rave in Wanstead, North East London, on Saturday night whilst praising its “nice crowd”.
Police were called to Wanstead Flats to disperse crowds at an unorganised music event in the early hours of Sunday morning.
Churchfields police officers were vocal in their praise of the gathering, dubbing revellers as “very understanding” following their immediate cooperation.
They tweeted late on Saturday night, saying: “Officers have attended and words of advice given to DJ to close shop. Nice crowd so hopefully no more complaints. Stay safe,”
They later tweeted again, adding: “It has all been cleared for the residents. The UME has been closed with a very understanding crowd.”
Photos of the rave were also posted, showing a gazebo lit up by LED lights, a soundsystem, and a handful of ravers.
