Police struggle to disperse thousands of illegal ravers at two events in London as crowd pelts offic

Police are struggling to disperse thousands of ravers at two events in London last night as 1,000 riot officers remain ready to crack down on illegal parties.

Officers are responding to 'unlicensed' raves on Clapham Common and Tooting Bec Common last night after a week of violence and disorder.

Video footage shows ravers dancing to loud music in Tooting Bec and hundreds of people earlier flouting social distancing in Clapham.

The Metropolitan Police have now put two dispersal zones in place.

Lambeth Police tweeted: 'Officers are at the scene of a large unlicensed music event in Clapham Common. They are dispersing those in attendance.

'We understand the impact this is having on the local community, officers will remain at the scene until the event is cleared.'
