A 23-year-old man arrested following an unlicensed music event near Beccles has been charged.

Officers from Norfolk and Suffolk attended the site at Stanley Hills, in Aldeby, shortly before midnight on Saturday, August 8.

It is thought about 500 people were in attendance at the height of the event, which was closed at about 3.30pm on Sunday, August 9, with sound equipment, speakers, turn-tables and four vehicles seized.

Josh Sutherland, of Dene Road, Lowestoft, was arrested in December and charged, yesterday, with carrying on a licensable activity without authorisation, contrary to Section 136 of the Licensing Act.

Sutherland has been released on bail to appear before Great Yarmouth Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday, February 17.
