26 arrests at We Are FSTVL

26 people were arrested by police at the We Are FSTVL dance festival this year.

The event was held at Damnys Hall Aerodrome, Upminster, over the bank holiday weekend from 25-27 August.

Thousands flocked to the event, which was headlined by electronic music stalwarts The Prodigy.

The Metropolitan Police have reported that there were more than 26 arrests made overall, one of which was in relation to an assault of an emergency worker.

The majority of these arrests – 13 in total – were made in connection with drug dealing, he said. 6 more people were arrested after they were found to be in possession of class A drugs.

Carrying a false ID reportedly led to two arrests, and one person was arrested after being caught with counterfeit currency.

Two other arrests were said to be made after assaults, and one after a minor driving offence.
