Witnesses reported seeing an “illegal rave” with bottles thrown at officers.

A spokesperson for Dorset Police said: “Officers attended and liaised with the occupants. It was reported officers had to deal with public disorder at the location.

“While on the scene, officers became aware of an injured man inside the property having reportedly fallen from a roof within the building.

“He was taken to hospital for treatment for injuries that are not believed to be serious.

“The group was dispersed from the area to allow for the safety of officers and members of the public at the scene and to treat the injured person.
