Officers issued the fines for breaches of Covid restrictions in place to try to halt the spread of the virus.

Officers had to break down barricades to get into the rave venue on Nursery Lane and they made one arrest.

They also seized sound equipment worth thousands of pounds.

The other £10,000 fines were handed out to organisers of events on Endcliffe Crescent, Endcliffe and Club Garden Road and Stalker Lees Road, both in Sharrow.

Anyone with information should call 101.
