An arrest was made as police were called to monitor a rave which began on Christmas Day.
Officers received reports of a number of people gathering on land off Potton Road, in Hemingford Grey, with cars reportedly becoming stuck on muddy roads.
A spokesman for Cambridgeshire police said: “As more information became available, there were estimates that between 100-200 people might arrive at the location.
“By the early hours of Boxing Day cars were being parked at surrounding locations, including at the Lakes Business Park and on roads in Hilton, with people walking to the site.”
The spokesman said that police called in Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service, as well as a helicopter, in order to “monitor the situation”.
