Police are continuing to investigate an illegal Christmas rave which took place in a disused warehouse unit in Huntingdon.
It is not clear if anyone has been arrested following the incident in Glebe Road, which started on Christmas Day and ran overnight into Boxing Day when it was finally closed down at lunchtime.
Hundreds of people are believed to have attended the rave, in an industrial area, which first started to bring noise complaints from people living nearby at about 10.30pm on Christmas Day.
A police spokesman said: “We received a number of calls in relation to a rave taking place on Monday 25 December in Glebe Road, Huntingdon.
“Officers attended the scene and worked with colleagues from the council and fire service to respond to the incident.”
