AT LEAST 500 revellers took part in an illegal rave at Goodwood over the Easter weekend.

It took place on the Goodwood Park Estate, north of Chichester, and is believed to have started in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Sussex Police were called and a spokesman said: “Around 500 people were on site when daylight allowed for a full assessment of the site.

“Sussex Police had been monitoring the rave and the numbers were reduced to around 300. Officers are continuing to liaise with the landowner and with communities living on the estate who may be affected by the events.”

No one is believed to have been arrested, although police stopped a car and a passenger, a 21-year-old woman from Northamptonshire, was given a warning after admitting possessing a small amount of herbal cannabis.
