Two men have been arrested over starting an illegal rave in Great Yarmouth.
Officials from Norfolk Police said they had successfully and swiftly disrupted an unlicensed musical event from escalating in the early hours of today.
Officers were alerted at about 12.20am where a group had congregated in a car park at Broadland rugby club on Mill Road in Great Yarmouth and loud music was being broadcast.
After officers requested the music be turned off, all of the attendees left the location by 1am.
A short while later at about 1.40am police received a report of bright lights and loud music coming from Ash Tree Farm, off Acle New Road, in the Great Yarmouth area.
On arrival, officers found around 15 people in attendance and officers took action to prevent other people and vehicles from arriving.
Sound equipment and a vehicle was seized by officers with two arrests being made.
