How many officers does it take?

Re: ‘Police should have acted to halt rave’, Thursday, May 5, 2011.

Could perhaps the Observer take up the challenge of prompting the police to ‘unplug’ these illegal events?

Readers would certainly appreciate anything you can do.

Recent rave venues include Singleton, Iping, Fittleworth, Duncton, Rake, Bignor and perhaps others which did not get publicity.

The police appear to have a standard reply which states the event was well under way and that they do not have the resources to do anything.

How many officers does it take to unplug the sound equipment?
