Metropolitan Police launch crackdown of ‘unlicensed music events’

The Metropolitan Police last night deployed teams of officers, on the night of Sunday, 28 July, the Met deployed across London to “keep communities safe” by closing down unlicensed music events (UMEs).

The events are completely illegal and are often linked to violent and anti-social behaviour, last week we saw Police Officers attacked on more than one occasion when responding to reports of an unlicensed party, it looks like the Met are not taking any chances again.

Officers attended several events on Saturday night and dispersed hundreds of people, largely without confrontation.

Among the unlicensed events were gatherings in the areas of Clapham Common, Tooting Bec Common, Burgess Park and Wembley.

In several locations, police were able to prevent music systems being set up before significant crowds gathered.

The Force warned those attending these unlicensed events they are also putting at increased risk of Covid-19 as social distancing is all but impossible.

Commander Bas Javid, of Frontline Policing, said: “There are teams of officers dedicated to tackling unlicensed music events on duty tonight.

“These events are illegal, they’re linked to violence, and groups who hold them are breaching health regulations.

“Those who go to unlicensed music events are putting themselves, their families and their communities at risk. I urge anyone considering attending an event like this to re-think their plans.

“Officers are already out across London, closing these events down, and they will arrest anyone suspected of criminal offences.

“I would like to thank the many people who have reported unlicensed music events to police over the past two nights. I urge communities to keep helping police by continuing to report this illegal activity.”

During one of these unlicensed music events in total, 27 officers were injured, none seriously, although two did require hospital treatment, several police vehicles were damaged.

A Dispersal Zone was authorised under s35 of the Anti-Social Behaviour Crime and Policing Act 2014 to encourage crowds to leave.
