A HUGE dispersal order remains in place around large parts of Carrington - amid plea to prevent another illegal rave.

Police chiefs have imposed the restriction on the area following last weekend's mass gathering.

One rape was reported and three serious assaults were reported - and one Salford man has been quizzed over public nuisance offences.

A 48-hour dispersal order means that anyone found assembling within that zone can be asked to move on - and arrested if they fail to comply.

And officers have also warned of the public health risk amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Insp Chris Sutcliffe said: If you are thinking of attending an illegal rave this weekend, then the dangers of these events are extremely clear.

"You are putting yourself at an unnecessary, and frankly, life-threatening risk."

The senior policeman said the industrial areas around Carrington posed inherent safety risks.

Video footage was released earlier this week of a stabbing casualty eventually being treated - though it took the emergency services eight minutes to reach him because of the chaos.

Insp Sutcliffe said that last weekend's rave was "fuelled by drink and drugs" and warned that the organisers were only interested in taking punters' money, with no first-aid, welfare or security laid on at either the Carrington or Daisy Nook events.
