Man stabbed during illegal rave at Willington gravel pits

A man is in a serious condition in hospital after being stabbed at an illegal rave in Bedfordshire that attracted about 1,000 people.

The 32-year-old Flitwick man was attacked between 07:00 GMT and 07:30 GMT on Sunday, during the rave at the Lafarge gravel pits in Willington.

The A603 Willington Road had to be closed for a time due to the number of vehicles in the area.

Police have now broken up the rave, which had begun at midnight.

The attacker is described as white, in his mid 20s and wearing a grey hooded top with navy piping around the edge of the hood.

Police are appealing for witnesses.
