Man dies, woman raped and three stabbed at Manchester illegal raves

During two illegal “quarantine raves” in Greater Manchester, 20-year-old man has died, a woman has been raped and three people have been stabbed.

Police said the illegal raves have had tragic consequences.

Police said about 4,000 people were at the Daisy Nook rave in Failsworth, Oldham, where there were no reported crimes, BBC reports.

There were, however, three separate stabbings at the Carrington site – one of which left an 18-year-old man with life-threatening injuries.

Two other men, aged 25 and 26, were hurt in separate stabbings and a 25-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of possession of an offensive weapon.

“We are also investigating the rape of an 18-year-old woman… and we have specialist officers supporting her and her family,” police said.

Images and footage were also shared on social media showing densely-packed crowds of people dancing and singing at the outdoor raves.

A large sign reading “Quarantine Rave” can be seen in background of one video.
