Main article content
Three people have been arrested and equipment seized as officers acted to tackle an unlicensed music event in Clacton.
We had received information that an event was planned to take place along our coast on Sunday (1 August) and we put a dispersal order in place to tackle it.
Three men from London – aged 22, 25, and 27 – were arrested on suspicion of conspiring to cause a public nuisance.
The 22-year-old man was also arrested on suspicion of driving otherwise than in accordance with a licence and driving without insurance.
They have all since been released under investigation.
Music equipment was also seized.
Detective Sergeant Vanessa Moss said:
“Unlicensed music events can pose a risk to the welfare of those who attend because few, if any, safety measures are put in place.
“We also know that criminals attend these types of events and prey upon people attending.
“And they also cause disruption to people living nearby.
“We acted swiftly, based on intelligence, to tackle the issue and officers made arrests and seized equipment.”
