THOUSANDS of people descended on East Croydon last night to attend an illegal rave in the former Royal Mail delivery depot. A large crowd gathered near the building, opposite East Croydon station, for the 'Rum and Bass' event at around 11.15pm on Saturday. Initial reports from the scene were that police, who attended in numbers, had shut down the event. A Met Police spokesman later confirmed officers were at the scene to ensure people's safety and had not attempted to stop the rave from happening. No arrests had been made as of midnight. While there was loud music and lights coming from inside the building, and a number of people had gained entry, at midnight there was still a large number of people outside the venue. At one stage a man with a loudspeaker stood on a roof at the rear of the building and told revellers: "Don't worry, you will be let in soon." Some people appeared to have gained entry by breaking a large window on the Cherry Orchard Road side of the building. The depot closed earlier this year to make way for flats and was relocated to Factory Lane. In April, an illegal rave in a warehouse in Bath House Road, just across the border in Sutton, attracted a crowd of more than 3,000 people.
