The gathering was reported to police on Friday 27th December.

It took place at Candover Bridge in Dartmoor.

Chief Supt Matt Longman said: 

"We attended the scene and worked with individuals to bring about closing the event down.

Roads were gridlocked and there was limited access for emergency vehicles to attend should they be needed.

There was at least one medical incident that we could not get an ambulance to, this person was eventually taken to hospital. This highlights the importance of maintaining public safety."

Police confirmed two arrests; an 18-year-old man from Winterslow, Wiltshire, was arrested on suspicion of possession of a controlled drug - Class A and Class C.

And, a 27-year-old man from Kingskwerwell was arrested on suspicion of driving whilst under the influence.
