An unlicensed music event, which recklessly breached the Coronavirus regulations, was shut down last weekend with the event organiser being reported for a £10,000 fine.
Shortly after 9.30 am on Sunday, 4 October, officers from the Met were called to Wythes Road, E16 following several concerns from residents of anti-social and violent behaviour in the streets.
After arriving on the scene, officers could hear loud music blaring from a derelict public house and saw more than 150 people crammed inside a hazardous and unsanitary hall within the building.
Extensive music and DJ systems were also set up in one corner of the building.
