Six men have been bailed on licensing charges following an illegal rave held in a Pembrokeshire village over the bank holiday weekend.

The men, who are aged between 23 and 52 and from towns across England, pleaded not guilty when they appeared before Haverfordwest magistrates on Thursday.

They were charged with offences under Section 136 of the Licensing Act for carrying out unlicensed licensable activity.

About 2,500 people attended the rave.

Residents in Dale, near Milford Haven, said cars descended on the area over the bank holiday, with people travelling from as far afield as Devon, Hampshire and the north east of England.

Of the 10 people arrested, four have been bailed while the investigation continues, Dyfed-Powys Police said.

The men charged were a 39-year-old from Taunton, three men, aged 29, 34 and 37, from Peterborough, a 52-year-old from Milton Keynes and a 23-year-old from Hungerford.

The next court hearing is 24 June.
