Police called to stop a ‘fully-fledged rave’ on the London Underground
Police were called to stop a "fully-fledged rave" on the London Underground on Monday (10.04.17).
The British Transport Police were on hand to diffuse a busy carriage on the Bakerloo line, which saw revellers turn the seated area into a travelling nightclub where people were dancing around to drum and bass music blasting out of a sound system whilst flashing lights and a smoke machine decorated the scene.
The police services took to social media to document the event. They tweeted: "We’ve just removed a fully fledged rave from a Bakerloo Line tube! All light hearted and very co-operative. #Bakerloo running normally. (sic)."
Although some travellers took to social media to show their enjoyment towards the festivity, which was led by MC Harry Shotta and Discoboy, other commuters were unimpressed by the raucous behaviour.
Speaking to the Mirror Online, Discoboy said: "I took my Discoboy trolley and set it up inside the tube.
"We had a smoke machine, blacked a bit out and had a few lights and we invited a few people down.
"People were loving it."
But another passenger complained: " @bakerlooline Can you please let me know why there’s some live rap performance holding up trains and keeping me from my PJs? (sic)."
