Hundreds of young people packed into an all-night illegal warehouse rave in London on Saturday night, social media footage has revealed. 

A video shared online showed a crowd of ravers ignore social distancing rules to stand shoulder-to-shoulder in a packed Barking venue in front of a live DJ.

Party-goers grinned for the camera and danced under strobe lighting in scenes that are likely to cause another spike in Covid-19 infections.

Many had their cameras out as they pumped their fists in the air in time to the music, in footage that has now sparked a police probe.

London is currently in Tier 2 to try to bring the spread of coronavirus under control. It means people living in different households are banned from meeting inside.
