A man has been charged with driving offences after an illegal rave in Norfolk.

Around 30 revellers descended on Bawsey Pits, on the outskirts of King’s Lynn, in the early hours of Sunday.

They left peacefully after being asked to go by police. A spokesman said: “Officers attended the site at Bawsey at 8.20am yesterday following reports a number of people had gathered in woodland. People at the scene were spoken to by police and left as requested.

“One of those attending was later arrested by officers in Gayton Road, King’s Lynn. Carl Hunt, 29, of London Road, King’s Lynn, was subsequently charged with drink driving, driving without insurance and without a valid licence. He has been bailed to appear at King’s Lynn Magistrates’ Court on June 4 at 9.30am.”

Today Stephen Bacon, who bought the former quarry workings from from minerals firm Sibelco in 2015, said he intended to turn it into a country park.
