Police are tonight remaining on the site of an illegal rave

0:00:130:00:16

which attracted around a thousand people on Dartmoor.

0:00:160:00:19

Officers broke up the event near Bellever late last night.

0:00:190:00:22

Harriet Bradshaw joined today's police operation.

0:00:220:00:26

So, what we're going to do in a minute, John, is we're

0:00:260:00:30

going to go on the scene and serve the notices.

0:00:300:00:32

I hitch a ride in.

0:00:320:00:33

The police have concerns about safety.

0:00:330:00:36

About 25 officers have been on the scene all day.

0:00:360:00:38

Their objective - to shut this down.

0:00:380:00:42

But some revellers are asking why.

0:00:420:00:45

Basically... Everybody wants a laugh.

0:00:450:00:47

At the end of the day, we are living in a world

0:00:470:00:50

that is grey if you cannot have fun, and to us this is fun.

0:00:500:00:54

And to such a big community, this is fun.

0:00:540:00:56

We are not hurting anybody.

0:00:560:00:57

Why is it made illegal?

0:00:570:00:58

Is happiness illegal?

0:00:580:01:00

But there have been objections to the noise.

0:01:000:01:03

Local residents reporting it in the early hours.

0:01:030:01:06

So, this is the first sound system.

0:01:060:01:10

They've closed down voluntarily through negotiation.

0:01:100:01:11

But I will serve them a formal notice to make sure they can't come

0:01:110:01:15

back and start up again later.

0:01:150:01:16

At its peak, it's estimated 1000 were at this illegal rave.

0:01:160:01:19

Now there are worries for those who could get left behind.

0:01:190:01:21

A team of police officers will be here overnight to stop any

0:01:210:01:24

further disturbances.

0:01:240:01:30

We finished doing our line searches and thermal imaging

0:01:300:01:33

searches in the woods.

0:01:330:01:35

There's only one vehicle left on site and we have accounted

0:01:350:01:38

for the driver of that vehicle, so we are happy no one is in situ.

0:01:380:01:42

But we will remain on duty throughout the night to make sure

0:01:420:01:44

a rave doesn't re-occur in this area or other potential rave sites.

0:01:440:01:49

And it's getting very cold here now.

0:01:490:01:52

That's why the emergency services are going through the woods looking

0:01:520:01:56

for people who are still on site.

0:01:560:02:00

And making sure nobody goes unaccounted for.

0:02:000:02:04

A Torquay man who was shot in the head in Antigua

0:02:060:02:09

is being flown off the island for urgent medical treatment.

0:02:090:02:13

Christopher Tester was seriously injured during an attempted robbery

0:02:130:02:16

at his parents' restaurant on Christmas Day.

0:02:160:02:19

He's been in an induced coma ever since, and is tonight

0:02:190:02:22

being helicoptered to nearby Guadeloupe.

0:02:220:02:26

Friends in Antigua and here in Devon have so far raised ?40,000

0:02:260:02:29

to help fly him back to the UK.

0:02:290:02:33

The bullet went in under the left temple and exited by the right eye.

0:02:330:02:37

So they're very concerned about swelling of the brain

0:02:370:02:39

and things like that.

0:02:390:02:44

But he's not well enough at this stage to be

0:02:440:02:47

airlifted back to the UK.

0:02:470:02:49

They need to get him more stable before that.

0:02:490:02:55

A major search was launched involving lifeboats and a rescue

0:02:550:02:57

helicopter after a Mayday call to coastguards in Cornwall.

0:02:570:03:01

The crew of a rib called Whiskey One raised the alarm last night saying

0:03:010:03:04

they were taking on water off the coast of Bude.

0:03:040:03:06

The vessel is still missing, and coastguards say they need

0:03:060:03:09

to know if the crew made it to safety.

0:03:090:03:14

Conditions last night were a lot worse than they are today.

0:03:140:03:16

And, as you can see, they are still quite severe today.

0:03:160:03:19

Our RNLI crew do it on a voluntary basis.

0:03:190:03:21

They put their lives at risk to save people for nothing.

0:03:210:03:24

If this is a hoax, then it's a very severe incident,

0:03:240:03:28

and needs to be dealt with.

0:03:280:03:35

A 40 mile an hour speed limit could be brought

0:03:350:03:38

in across Bodmin Moor to cut the number of animals

0:03:380:03:40

killed on the roads.

0:03:410:03:41

Speed restrictions were previously introduced at Pensilva after 22

0:03:410:03:44

ponies died from being hit by vehicles in just one year.

0:03:440:03:46

It drastically cut the number of pony deaths, prompting calls

0:03:460:03:49

for a 40 mile an hour limit across the entire moor.

0:03:490:03:54

Time now for the latest on the weather -

0:03:570:03:59

here's Sarah Farmer.

0:03:590:04:00

here's Sarah Farmer.

0:04:000:04:02

Hello and a very good evening to you.

0:04:020:04:05

We have another cold night ahead of us.

0:04:050:04:07

Some patchy frost in parts, and it looks like we could see some

0:04:070:04:10

mist and fog as well.

0:04:100:04:11

The most prone areas to the east of our region,

0:04:110:04:13

and here we do have a yellow weather warning in place from the Met Office

0:04:130:04:17

for some foggy conditions.

0:04:170:04:18

That's valid from midnight right through until midday

0:04:180:04:20

tomorrow morning.

0:04:200:04:21

Here especially a grey start to the day, some

0:04:210:04:23

of the fog could linger on.

0:04:230:04:25

Further west faring better for some good brightness.

0:04:250:04:27

And to the Channel Islands too, perhaps mist first thing,

0:04:270:04:29

but some brighter skies developing as the day draws on.

0:04:290:04:32

Temperatures peaking at nine or 10 degrees.

0:04:320:04:33

Taking a look ahead, that warning is in place

0:04:330:04:37

until midday tomorrow, but it looks like we will see some

0:04:370:04:40

brighter skies later on.

0:04:400:04:43

Then through the tail end of this week, much cloudier conditions

0:04:430:04:45

and feeling a little cold at times.

0:04:450:04:47

Brighter skies on the way for 2017.

0:04:470:04:50

That's all from the late team.

0:04:540:04:56

From all of us here, have a good night.
