Three Met Police Officers have been hurt during a seven-hour siege at an illegal rave in Walthamstow.

Missiles were hurled at police officers as they stormed a building on Hoe Street after party-goers barricaded themselves inside.

Riot Police stormed the building just before 5am after members of the public alerted them to the rave just before 10pm.

Hundreds of people attended the unlicensed music event. When officers arrived some people went inside the building and began hurling items at the police below from the windows.

Two female Police Constables and one male Police Constable was hurt in the attack. Thankfully they did not require any hospital treatment.
