A rave-hit factory in Yarmouth called in workers today to clear up the mess in time for operations to begin normally again tomorrow.

Simon Young, manager of Thermaglow, which employs 85 people manufacturing heating elements, said: “They came in via another premises out the back, breaking down a fence and gate in the process.

“They broke into an office so they could use the electric sockets for their sound system, but also completely smashed it up. They broke a desk, left files all over the floor and stole a computer. Fortunately, we have a mainframe computer so everything should have been backed up on that.”

He said the site had been targeted for a rave five years ago before they had taken it over and at a time when it was vacant.

He said: “Whether they had earmarked it for another rave I don't know. They came through the main factory but apparently left after discovering it was full of machinery and not a place they could dance.”

Mr Young said police would be advising them how they could step up security at their site in Boundary Road.
