Police battle to shut down illegal raves as thousands attend one event in South Wales  

30th August 2020 (Sky News). New rules came into force on Friday meaning people holding illegal gatherings could be fined £10,000. Police are trying to shut down illegal raves in South Wales and Norfolk after thousands travelled from across the UK to attend one event, despite new rules to crack down on mass gatherings. Up to 3,000 people attended the "totally unacceptable" event in the rural village of Banwen and officers are at the scene, South Wales Police said. It comes as police in Norfolk worked to shut down an all-night unlicensed music event in a forest attended by more than 500 people. New rules which came into force on Friday ahead of the bank holiday weekend mean organisers of illegal raves could be hit with £10,000 fines.
