Hundreds of young revellers have been captured flouting Covid-19 laws by partying through the night at a London warehouse.

Mobile phone video footage, uploaded to social media, shows a huge crowd of maskless party-goers ignoring social distancing and dancing to loud music.

Revellers are seen dancing shoulder-to-shoulder under strobe lights and waving their arms in the air in front of a live DJ, at the event which is said to have taken place in Barking.

The Rave Vault shared the video on Instagram and Twitter writing: ‘London at it again last night. Beats provided by some big hitters.’

One person commented on the post: ‘Loved every moment.’



A Twitter user claimed the ‘revolution is here’, while another wrote: ‘Dope guys keep it going.’

Another commented calling them an ‘irresponsible bunch of c***s’, amid fears such a party could cause a Covid-19 outbreak, while the country is grappling with a second wave of the virus.

London is currently under tier two restrictions, meaning households are banned from mixing in any indoor setting.

Under the rules, fines of £10,000 can be issued for party organisers of more than 30 people.

Smaller gatherings which break the rule of six are subject to fixed penalty notices of £200.

It comes after police were forced to shut down a rave of more than 200 in Stanmer Park, Brighton, in the early hours of Sunday.

Earlier in the week, four Nottingham Trent University students were fined a total of £40,000 after hosting a house party with dozens of guests.
