Police and ravers came to a stand off during an illegal 16 hour rave in a disused B&Q warehouse following complaints from local residents.

100s of ravers were reportedly partying from Saturday evening until the music was switched off around 11am on Sunday morning in the Muller Road area of Bristol according to Bristol Post.

Graffiti was sprayed on walls while fast-paced techno and live punk bands soundtracked the early hours of Sunday. Nearby residents were understandably unsettled – “I’m sure they work very hard and are under-resourced but that isn’t much comfort to the local community.”

A spokesperson for Avon and Somerset Constabulary said “The music was turned off shortly after 11am and those in attendance subsequently left the scene. We understand that for those affected by the noise these events can be very frustrating and we’d like to thank the public for their patience.”
