Police Break Up Rave On Isolated Saddleworth Moor With Predictable Results

by | 3rd, May 2011

DID you got to the rave on “isolated” Saddleworth More, the one that ended with, as the MEN reports, “attacks on police cars” when the coppers tried to break up the party? Did you got her to drink and – god forbid – smoke? Did you want to have fun away from the eyes of State Control?

The party was held in the remains of an old shepherd’s cottage off the A635 Greenfield to Holmfirth road.

The party staged in a remote area used by sheep needed the police because..?

The report tells us:

Police were called in early yesterday. But yobs smashed the windows of two patrol cars and a third vehicle – a Ford Focus – was set alight.

Didn’t the police expect trouble?

Still, the report is on the side of the officials:

Ravers are thought to have arrived with booze, generators to blast out music and a tarpaulin to cover the roof of the cottage. The building, which belongs to nearby Uppermill House farm, is derelict. The land is used to keep sheep.

So. What harm could the ravers have done had the police not arrived?
