The music was reportedly heard coming from the area surrounding Flouch Roundabout and could be heard near Penistone train station.

In a tweet to residents, South Yorkshire Police said: “We have been out to this event and spoken and given words of advice and requested that this was to be turned down.

“However this is on private land and the powers for noise issues lie with the council.”
