Police have revealed they made just a handful of arrests at a dance music festival that brought thousands of revellers to Hatfield on Saturday.

Although the Eastern Electrics festival brought about 12,000 fans of techno and garage to Hatfield House, only 11 people fell foul of police.

One was arrested for assault, and two for possession of class A drugs, although details were taken of a further seven suspected drug users.

One other man was arrested as he was wanted for previous allegations.
