West Midlands Police (WMP) has released some infra-red drone footage of the moment when at least 50 revellers tried to escape via rooftop after the cops busted their illegal rave.
Officers had received a tip-off that around 150 people had gathered inside a building located on the Jewellery Quarter on Buckingham Street, Birmingham.
Anticipating that some of the revellers might try and run away once police arrived on the scene, ground commanders also sent WMP’s drone unit to the area.
The footage (below) captures the moment when the revellers clamber up on to the roof to avoid having their details taken for Covid fines.
However, WMP confirmed that 50 people were issued with the £200 fines and that the DJ now faces a £10,000 fine.

WE NEED YOUR HELP.Here at Emergency Services News, we aim to tell you stories that the mainstream media are not interested in reporting. Whilst the MSM love to berate and ridicule the emergency services, who is there to report on the realities of serving on the front line?
Emergency Services News is currently a loss-making entity. But our team of volunteers, all former emergency services personnel, do not do it for the money.
We do it because we are sick and tired of the mainstream media constantly trying to undermine the men and women who put their lives on the line to keep you and your family safe.
How many MSM journalists who speak ill of the emergency services have actually dared to don the uniform and risk their own lives to save the life of a complete stranger?
