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.
