Furious Barking and Dagenham residents take to council facebook page to complain about illegal rave
Angry residents, kept awake by what they described as an illegal rave, took to the council’s facebook website.
Donna Wright posted a message close to 5am on Sunday, saying she was still being kept awake, and at 8am she wrote that it was “still booming.”
Other furious residents also took to the page for Barking and Dagenham Council after being kept up by the noise, which Donna thought was coming from River Road, off the East Ham and Barking by-pass.
Carol Howard Wake wrote: “I feel sorry for all the people on Thames View estate and all those on that side.”
Donna also questioned what the point of the council’s out-of-hours helpline was.

But Barking and Dagenham Council later responded directly on facebook, saying that after a “thorough joint investigation” by council officers and the police, the noise was identified as coming from Beckton and referred to Newham Council.
A Newham Council spokesmansaid: “We have thoroughly investigated this and have been working closely with Transport for London, who own the site where the unlicensed and illegal raves have been taking place, near Gallions Reach station, to increase the level of security to restrict unlawful access.
