Peace for the police at DJs' festival.

POLICE say the weekend's massive God's Kitchen dance festival at Long Marston passed off peacefully.

Crowds swarmed to Long Marston airfield, near Stratford, to hear top acts such as Judge Jules and Danny Rampling perform in six arenas as part of the Global Gathering event.

Apart from a number of minor arrests, and some traffic hold-ups, police were pleased at how the festival progressed. Nine people were arrested.

Five were detained for drugs possession, two more for possession of offensive weapons, and one for theft. Another festivalgoer was detained under the powers of the Mental Health Act. Investigations were continuing into three more suspected robberies and five alleged thefts, involving wallets and handbags.

Police reported a handful of drugs casualties at the festival - five people had to be taken for hospital treatment.
