Roads closed following Dartmoor incident

Published by the Pirate FM News Team at 3:09pm 27th December 2019.

Some roads in Dartmoor have been closed by police following reports of an illegal gathering in the area. 

Officers were called to Candover Bridge on Friday morning after they expressed concern for both the people in attendance and the impact on the local community. 

“We are currently at the scene working with members of the public to bring about closing the event down.

“Local roads are currently gridlocked and there is limited access for emergency vehicles to attend should they be needed.

“In the interest of public safety, we are asking anyone thinking about attending the event not to do so. Especially as this is intended to be closed down shortly.

“We have also closed local roads in the area until further notice.”

Chief Supt, Matt Longman
