COVID-19: Thousands attend an illegal rave in France


More than 2,500 people have attended an illegal rave in France, clashing with police who attempted to stop the event.

The rave, held in a disused warehouse at Lieuron near Rennes in Brittany, started on New Year’s Eve and came to an end on Saturday morning.

Mass gatherings are not allowed under French COVID-19 restrictions – and a nationwide 8pm to 6am curfew is in force.
