An eyewitness has claimed they heard "several gunshots" at a party which took place in Mitcham last night.

The illegal rave took place on the field next to Cannons Leisure Centre at around 11pm on June 25.

An eyewitness said they heard several gunshots which caused some party-goers to run away.

However, not everyone appeared to be scared, as the party reportedly continued to the early hours of this morning.

Similar scenes took place last week, after a man was shot following a large gathering in Mitcham.

The eyewitness said: "I don't know what time I heard it but it was definitely gunshots and people were running.

"Around seven police vans turned up but there were no arrests.

"I think they let the party continue because of what happened in Brixton."

Met Police have been contacted for comment.
