POLICE forces across East Anglia are combining resources to react rapidly to tip-offs of illegal New Year's Eve raves.
The Cambridgeshire, Norfolk and Suffolk forces are targeting people known to be involved in organising unlicensed musical events and other types of disorder.
They are also urging landowners to be on the lookout for people trying to exploit the Christmas and New Year holiday to host unlicensed events on remote land or in empty buildings.
People are being urged to report any suspicious activity, such as a large group of vehicles gathering, or if they hear that an event is being planned. Landowners are urged to lock gates leading to their property.

Supt Joanne Parrett said: "These types of events are anti-social, cause a great deal of distress to local people and have an adverse impact on the environment.
"While we do not want to prevent people enjoying themselves, we will not accept the detrimental impact that raves and other types of disorder or anti-social behaviour have on local communities and the environment."
