In a statement, Metropolitan Police said:

 “We are carrying out investigations to track down the people who are advertising and organising these raves this weekend.

“The people that organise them need to be aware that they are responsible for people’s safety when they plan and put on raves.

“Parties of this nature are not licensed and they are often dangerous. No security staff, no medics, no concerns about the number of people present and unsafe properties all add up to a really dangerous place for people to be.

“People who live near these suggested venues shouldn’t have to tolerate the associated noise, crime and anti-social behaviour that can come with such raves.We will have a policing operation in place in both Wandsworth and Erith over the weekend.

“Officers have been visiting local properties and land owners to give advice on security.”
