An illegal rave was thwarted by police and a ‘wanted’ youth arrested after neighbourhood officers received an anonymous tip off.

The tip meant PCSOs stopped the gathering in the park, just off Hastoe Lane in Tring, last Wednesday.

PCSO Martin Leadbitter said: “Just as a generator powered music system was about to start up, we entered the park and dispersed a large number of youths from the area.

“On route back to town we identified a local wanted youth, who on arrest has been found to be in possession of a large quantity of cannabis and a weapon. “The male was later charged for three separate offences.”
