The guests caused noise and a lot of rubbish on the banks of the water in the south-west of the capital on Friday evening, a police spokesman said on Saturday.

The young people had brought jukeboxes, alcohol and, in two cases, drugs to the conservation area.

Officials cleared the parties after 10:00 p.m. without much resistance. “After that there were no more problems,” said the police spokesman. (dpa)
