Police have sold speakers confiscated from illegal parties on eBay.

Sussex Police sold a set of eight speakers seized from a rave last summer on the internet auction site.

The speakers, described as scruffy, sold for £225.

A spokesman for Sussex Police said: “The speakers were seized from a small unlicensed music event last summer and were listed for sale on eBay several months later after no owner came forward to claim them.”

The eBay auction described the speakers as scruffy but undamaged.

“They are scruffy all round but do not seem to be damaged,” the seller wrote.

“They are all quite scruffy from use and being dragged around. None are visibly damaged though.”

The speakers were sold for collection only at the main police station in Brighton.

Six men accused of organising a huge, lockdown-busting rave on the South Downs in 2021 will face trial in April.

Sussex Police states: "Part of the money raised from sales will go towards the Police Property Act Fund (PPAF) which helps support local projects undertaken by voluntary/charitable organisations that solely benefit the communities of Sussex. The remaining profits go towards the running and handling costs of the force’s property stores.

"The Sussex Police shop offers a real mix of items from clothing and perfume, to pedal cycles and electronics, all at bargain prices."
