Illegal raves continue in neighbourhoods and parks during the pandemic
What sort of person attends an illegal rave during a pandemic?
While the majority of British people have adhered to coronavirus lockdown restrictions and remained within their homes, sacrificing time with family and friends along the way, some have not.
In recent weeks, as the government slowly winds down the restrictions at a time when high numbers of death are still being recorded, people are beginning to flout the rules more and more.
Social-distancing rules have been abandoned despite daily Covid deaths continuing.

Last week, thousands of people were pictured flocking to beaches to enjoy the warm weather, in direct contradiction of social distancing regulations, while illegal raves are popping up across the country.
From Manchester to London, people are attending these raves in neighbourhoods and local parks, leaving a mess behind them and putting lives at risk. Don't be like them.
