Five arrested at East Lancs ‘rave of raves’

FIVE people were arrested after a party got out of hand and spilled into the street.

Residents in Blackburn Road, Oswaldtwistle, said the party started when loud music started banging through the walls at 4pm on Saturday.

And the party continued until the early hours when, having hadenough, neighbours called police.

Five people were arrested and the rest scattered, some climbing into neighbouring gardens to escape.

A neighbour said: “It was unbelievable.

“It started at 4pm and I said to my husband they will probably go out in a bit.

“But they didn’t. They stayed there and it was like a constant mass of noise.

“There were young girls screaming and shouting obscenities. The language was terrible.”

When police arrived they threatened to break down the door as revellers had barricaded themselves inside.

But eventually they gave in and opened the door.

Another resident said: “I have never seen anything like it. This was the rave of raves.

“No one could sleep or watch their television and the walls were echoing.

“It wasn’t worth going round to complain as there must have been 20 or 30 of them.

“It escalated out on to the pavement and then it got violent and they started fighting with each other.

“Someone must have called the police and they certainly turned out in force.

“There were eight police vehicles out there.

“The annoying part is that someone jumped over the walls into our back yard and there was some damage done.

“We have grandchildren who sometimes stay at weekends and if they were here they would have been terrified.

“It is unacceptable. We cannot get on with our lives when it is like that.”

There something you don't hear about much. Police attending a party. Usually you are just told to call environmental health as it's a civil matter not a police matter. We've had similar incidents in my area and never had a police responce.
I can only assume it's the same old if they can be bothered.

It isn't a question of whether or not they can be bothered it's if they had the resources available and it would appear on this occasion they did.
Yes it isn't environmental health matter but if you ring up and there's somebody available then they'll always send cops round to tell them to turn it down.

On the subject in question the selfishness of these ne'er-do-wells never ceases to amaze me. When playing what can only be described as disorganised noise at ear splitting levels and spilling out onto the streets p1ssed creating they have no sense of respect for their neighbours whatsoever. People who engage in this kind of antisocial behaviour should be banned from owning any equipment capable of playing "music" and even excluded from their house for a set period.
Selfish @rseholes the lot of em.

Hmmm .... I bet most of the guests looked like drag queens ie, false hair, false nails, false eyelashes and false tan, couldn't speak properly without every other word being a swear word .... There are a lot of these inbreds around ..... Make a drama out of anything, take lots of selfies with a trout pout and if they have children, palm them off on anyone who will babysit whilst at the same time reckoning their kids are their world!! They probably all had their hair done at the same salon in Accrington ..... The one where they come out looking like they have been soaked in creosote have plaits all round the side of their head and a weave that should be thrown across the stage at a Jerry Springer scrap!!! It is refreshing that the Police attended .... Can you arrest someone for having no class, style or breeding?!

Whilst I sort of agree about resources, that seems to always be the excuse. What about the time my son was getting a kicking from bullies in the street. He phoned 999 in a panic. I got to the scene 5 minutes after with the bullies still there. The police phoned back some 10 minutes after the incident telling me to take him home. He sustained bruising to his jaw and bruised robs. If I hadn't got there it could've been a lot worse. Can't rely on the police for anything. Surely this type of incident requires a police presence quickly, they didn't even bother to turn out for an assault call either. I have lost all confidence in the police. Glad they could attend the noise incident though. Time they did more of it.

Why not play them some classical music the next day while they are trying to sleep it off, crank up the 1812 Overture and take a trip down the shops for a few hours.

would say the property is probably a private let? landlords just don't care so long as the social keep paying the rent.they should be made to pay police costs.landlords should be licensed like pubs,and if they fail to keep to the conditions of the license they should lose it.also benefit recipients should only be able from licensed landlords

There is selective licencing in place for landlords to deal with this sort of thing. Unfortunately you need to apply for it as an area and takes months to sort. It is very difficult to get the licencing in place, the council are very evasive when you approach them to ask about it. I have personal experience in this matter.
