Thousands of pounds in Covid fines have been dished out after police broke up another illegal rave.

Upon arrival, officers from across the county issues 12 Covid fines, each £200, to those who attended the illegal gathering.

A spokesperson from Lancashire Police said: “Tactical Operations from around the county have supported local patrols in breaking up an illegal rave in Healey Nab Quarry.
“The area is littered with bottles, NO2 capsules and rubbish.
“Twelve Covid breach tickets issued and two males dealt with for possession of cannabis.”
