Illegal Rave In Bevercotes Resolved Peacefully By Police

This past Sunday, September 15th, police were called to respond to an illegal rave in Bevercotes. The rave was allegedly going on at a former colliery, which made for an ideal location to rave in. This is part of a larger trend of illegal raves that have been taking place in the UK, with hundreds having been reported within the last year. 

This rave luckily remained nonviolent, with no arrests being made. Apparently, the police did their best to remain peaceful during confrontations with ravers. This is in stark contrast to typical police response to raves, which can often turn quite ugly. In late August, police arrested nearly one hundred rave-goers at an illegal event in Ibiza, Spain. That occasion did turn violent, with angered partygoers attacking officers with rocks and even metal pipes, allegedly. 

The rave was called in by concerned locals who were concerned over reports of loud music coming from a quite unexpected place. The colliery in question has been unused for quite some time, and residents haven’t heard any sort of activity coming from there in quite some time, so it was obviously quite a surprise when in the early hours of Sunday bass thumpings and high treble whines were heard coming from the cavernous party space. 

While the rave was obviously loud enough to awaken slumbering locals, the number of people apprehended at the event was quite small. There were only a reported 80-100 revellers being asked to leave. While it is unknown whether or not there were more partygoers at one point, by the time police arrived most of them might’ve scurried off. 

Of those there, most were definitely hardcore ravegoers, and were dressed to the nines in typical fashions]. Rave Clothing men wore to the event was brightly colored and athletic in nature. As of yet, there have been no mentions of any gang or criminal activity among the rave-goers, and none of the outfits worn by the partiers suggested any obvious gang affiliation. Although drug use was reported by concerned locals, police found no evidence of any illegal drugs. However, there is the possibility that most of them might’ve been consumed by the time police officers were able to arrive on the scene. 

On the whole, this rave event ended just about as well as one could hope, with zero casualties, overdoses, or any other unfortunate happenings taking place. Except, of course, the party being broken up to begin with. This isn’t the first time that a rave has been broken up at this colliery, with another taking place in early July of this year. As is, it’s likely that even more raving events will take place at the scene, as it makes for an ideal location that is relatively far from locals and currently vacant by any professional company or local resident. Police seem to feel the same way, as evidenced by the strategy of peaceful resolution through verbal communication with the rave organizers. As is, this might be a pretty efficient solution to the problem of illegal raves in the UK.

5 Common Personal Injury Case Types You Ought to Know




If you have ever been in a car accident or suffered a trip, slip, or fall incident, you know the end result can be weeks, months, or years of pain and suffering. As you seek to get back to full health, or at least to something close to normal, you’ll want to know what help is available to you.  

The good news is that recourse is available should you suffer a personal injury due to another person’s negligence. But you’ll need the help of a personal injury lawyer to, first, determine if you have grounds to pursue a case and, second, build a solid case on your behalf.

You might be surprised to learn about the different kinds of personal injury cases recognized by law. 

According to the National Safety Council, there were 62 million injuries and almost a quarter of a million preventable deaths in 2021. So, severe mishaps happen more often than you might think. 

Keep reading to see five common types of personal injury cases to know about.

  1. Motor Vehicle Accidents

The National Safety Council notes that there were 5.4 million medically consulted injuries due to motor vehicle mishaps in 2021, and the total costs for motor vehicle injuries were estimated at $498.3 billion. Costs include things like wages and productivity losses, administrative expenses, medical expenses, employer costs, and motor vehicle property damage. 

If you’re involved in a car accident, the injuries sustained can be substantial. You’ll be fortunate if you’re left unscathed or perhaps with a few minor bumps and bruises. But severe injuries are an unfortunate possibility as well. 

Another thing to remember about motor vehicle incidents is that it’s not just about drivers on the road — pedestrians, too, can file personal injury claims. Of the 1.3 million or so people who die each year in vehicle accidents worldwide, around half of them are pedestrians, motorcyclists, and cyclists. 

  1. Slip, Trip, and Fall Accidents

Did you know that one out of four Americans who are over 65 years old suffer a fall annually? Owners of private residences and public establishments are required to ensure their properties don’t present safety hazards to others. But falls don’t just occur when people are out and about. They often occur in the workplace. 

In fact, slips and falls are the main reason for lost work days. And falls are the cause of over 8 million hospital emergency room visits each year.

  1. Dog Bite Accidents

You might be surprised to hear that about 4.5 million people in the U.S. are bitten each year by dogs. Of that amount, around 800,000 people have to pursue medical attention after a dog bite. If a dog bites you, the costs could add up when you consider hospital visits, doctor appointments, and time off work.

  1. Workplace Accidents

Many personal injury accidents take place when people are on the job. In such instances, you’ll need to file a workers’ compensation claim. Filers won’t have to prove that their employer was at fault, but they’re unable to sue for non-economic damages like pain and suffering under the workers’ compensation system. 

A personal injury lawyer can, however, launch legal action outside of workers’ compensation to sue for non-economic damages you’re entitled to.

  1. Product Liability Accidents

Another type of personal injury case involves product liability situations. If someone suffers an injury due to a consumer product deemed to be dangerous, a product liability case is possible. To prove such a case, you have to show there was a manufacturing defect, design defect, or inadequate warnings detailing the product’s dangers. 

It’s also vital to know that a case can be launched by someone who, while injured by the product, didn’t buy the product. 

These are five of the most common types of personal injury cases. If you’re injured and want to find out if you have a case, the best thing you can do is contact a personal injury lawyer. You can book a consultation and determine whether you have a case and the best course of action.
