Police arrived to find hundreds of teens and young adults at an illegal rave in Chatteris on Saturday evening.

Eight police cars were called to the scene at 10pm following reports of the party in First Furlong Drove, Chatteris.

Upon arrival, officers found about 300 people. Due to the number of people and safety concerns, it was decided that the police should monitor the event.

However because of the location, there was limited disruption to members of the public.

One person said on Facebook: “What ever is going on down near the railway track tonight? Bit unnerving. Never seen so many cars and so many youths in one place.”

The site was cleared by 3pm the following day, Sunday November 1.
