Police put an end to an illegal party in London in which more than 150 people participated


Police organized an illegal house party attended by more than 150 people in north London.

More than 50 agents helped end the event, which was said to have taken place at a rented property on the Airbnb property in Archway on Friday, after neighbors complained.

Images posted by a neighbor on YouTube show dozens of people in the garden, wearing no masks or social distancing.

“The people who came had no respect for the neighbors around them nor any respect for the rules of quarantine or social distancing,” a neighbor wrote under the video.

He said the house was rented on Airbnb and the guest “took the opportunity to throw a massive party that quickly got out of hand”, adding that the “rave” was very loud.

“I felt like I was at the party all the time,” he wrote.

Officers were called to the scene just after 11:50 p.m. on July 31 following reports of a “large gathering of people playing loud music,” a Metropolitan Police spokesperson said.

They added: “The agents were present and spoke with the organizers, asking them to close the event.

“A notice of closure has been promulgated. Officers remained at the scene as those present began to disperse.

The force said no arrests had been made.

Chief Superintendent Roy Smith wrote on Twitter: ‘Officers shut down illegal and anti-social parties tonight playing loud music until the wee hours of the morning, crowded groups of over 150 people risking the spread of Covid- 19 and preventing poor families with young children from waking up at 3 a.m. . ”

Gatherings of more than 30 people are banned under coronavirus restrictions in England, and police have repeatedly shut down illegal raves across the country.
