Police have released footage taken from drones and the police helicopter of the illegal rave which took place just outside Brandon at the weekend.

They were called at around 11.20pm on Saturday 29th August, to the unlicensed music event which was taking place in the forest between Brandon and Mundford.

Specialist officers from Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex and Cambridgeshire were deployed to close down the event which is reported to have had over 500 people in attendance.

Now footage has been released that was recorded by the police drone unit and also by the National Police Air Service (NPAS) that was also called into assist.
