A teenager who allegedly threatened to kill a police officer at an illegal rave has been released under investigation.
Party-goers had held an unlicensed music event at a disused building at Aylward Primary School, in Pangbourne Drive, Stanmore, on Saturday May 6 night.
During the illegal "rave", police were called but decided not to enter the ongoing event to "to prevent serious disorder and disruption on the streets surrounding the location" - so the party went on until the early hours of next day.
After police were called to the scene, at around 10.30pm that night, a 17-year-old male allegedly threatened to kill one of the officers.
The teen was taken to a north London police station for questioning and "has been released under investigation, pending further investigation", the Metropolitan Police said.
Local Harrow police had tweeted this warning in the middle of the night, as the ravers partied the night away.
A Metropolitan Police spokesman said: "Officers attended the scene and found a large number of people already inside the venue, as well as others attempting to gain entry to the building.
"Throughout the time that officers were on scene, their main priority was to ensure the safety of those both inside and outside the venue, while working to bring the event to a timely conclusion.
"There were no reports of any incidents of disorder."
Clive Westall, headteacher of Aylward Primary School, said the reason the rave took place was because they've actually vacated and have moved to new facilities.
He said: "We've left our old building which is now in the hands of a construction company.
"One weekend ravers got into that old building and had a party. Since then, the construction company has increased the security on the site to ensure nothing like that happens again.
"It was a very unfortunate event which we're sad about, but we're very excited to have our brand new facilities in use."
