Cornwall and Devon police crack down on illegal raves.

It is expected there will be events over the bank holiday weekend, as it is one of the most popular times of the year for them.

Patrols will be in place for areas across Cornwall at risk.

We are being warned of the dangers and disruption the events can cause.

Devon and Cornwall police told Pirate FM they can be hot spots for drink and drugs.

They have seen people getting lost, seriously hurt or even die.

People involved in the events are at risk of having equipment taken or even being arrested.

Officers are asking us to report any suspicious activity so they can shut down the events.

Superidendant Craig Downham is heading it up, he said: "Safety regulations used at all public events were introduced to ensure safety of those attending, yet illegal raves do not follow any guidance.

"These types of unregulated events are not only dangerous to those attending but cause disruption to people who live nearby.

"We have seen incidents where people have got lost in poor weather in very remote areas and come to harm, as well as people attending suffering medical episodes and in need of medical attention – yet due to terrain and the poor management of the rave site it is extremely difficult for police and other emergency services to respond.

"We will take positive action regarding criminal activity and identify and target organisers. We can seize any equipment associated with the activity and take positive action against those suspected of offences such as drink-driving and drug possession.
