Police say they have prevented an illegal rave on Woodbury Common following an operation on Saturday night.

Sound equipment has been seized, with follow-up investigations being conducted, as part of Devon and Cornwall Police’s Operation Derig, which also prevented a rave at Fernworthy Reservoir.

Inspector Steve Bradford said: “Officers reacted quickly to information from members of the public to deal with two raves in the process of being set up ensuring sound equipment was seized and persons requested to leave the area.”
