Rave video: Riot police break-up illegal rave in Crowthorne

Published: 10 Jan 2013 07:002 comments

PARTY-GOERS have accused police of heavy-handed tactics for using riot shields and incapacitating spray to break up an illegal rave.

Officers were called to Crowthorne Woods, off Devils Highway, on Saturday night, where they closed the event and seized sound equipment.

One officer was hurt in the incident and, despite reports on our website and Facebook page that revellers were hurt, police said they were unaware of any other injuries.
