Police have issued an update into their investigation into the ‘illegal rave’ in North Yorkshire over the bank holiday weekend.
As YorkMix reported on Sunday, thousands of people attended the rave at the old Stillingfleet mine, between York and Selby.
Residents said the music was extremely loud and continued into the early hours, leaving them with a sleepless night.
They also feared someone could be hurt as witnesses said some visitors to the rave were driving erratically, raising concerns that they might be under the influence of drink or drugs.
North Yorkshire Police took action on Sunday and seized vans filled with music equipment and made several arrests.
Today (Tuesday), the force has issued an update.
A North Yorkshire Police spokesperson said: “A total of nine suspects, all men aged in their 20s and 30s, have now been arrested in connection with this incident.
“They have been released on bail while police enquiries continue.
“Once again, we’re very grateful to local residents for their support and patience over the weekend.”
