Police have extra manpower on standby to deal with any illegal raves over the Easter weekend.

Thames Valley Police say Easter is historically a “hot spot” for these gatherings and they are urging members of the public to keep an eye out.

Inspector Emma Baillie said: “I encourage land owners and communities in the Thames Valley area to report raves being set up as soon as possible.”

Anyone who sees something suspicious can contact the police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111 so the illegal rave can be prevented before it starts.
