Officers were called to the property in Pixley Street at around 7.30am on Sunday, 22 November and could instantly hear deafening music coming from the basement.
They went to investigate and found a DJ and sound system had been set up and up to 50 people were drinking and dancing. Strobe lights and lighting systems had also been set up.

The organiser is now facing a £10,000 fine under the Coronavirus regulations due to the seriousness of the breach.
“This was such a shocking and blatant attempt to breach the regulations,” said Chief Inspector Pete Shaw. “We are living in a health crisis and Tower Hamlets has some of the highest infection rates within London.
“The behaviour by those who organised or attended this rave was downright unacceptable and risked furthering the spread of the virus.
“We will continue to take tough action against those who selfishly do not consider the wider impact of their actions, blindly taking risks and ignoring the rules which the majority of Londoners have followed admirably.”
