Hundreds of drunks will spend the night behind bars after being picked up in a raid conducted by Dover’s new anti anti-social behaviour taskforce.
Officers descended upon the property on Biggin Street this afternoon after receiving reports of “booze” and were confronted with what one eye-witness described as “people drinking”.
A police spokesman told us “This isn’t the first time we’ve received reports of drinking at this particular property, and it’s becoming something of a regular occurrence. Obviously, we had to do something about it.
“But I must admit, even we were astonished by the scale and audacity of this operation. After gaining entry to the property officers detected rows upon rows of labelled beer kegs, all of which were tended by people, some of whom had garments carrying pro-alcohol slogans.
“In addition to the individuals tending aforementioned kegs, officers also observed a crowd of people who appeared to be trading small plastic tokens for alcohol. Upon further investigation of the crime scene we discovered a secondary chamber in which a group of personages had congregated to consume aforementioned alcohol while engaged in activities, for example, sitting.
“All individuals present were taken into custody for further questioning.”
