Via Police close down Facebook barbecue for 15 people – Telegraph:

When Andrew Poole organised his 30th birthday party and posted invitations on the social networking site Facebook, he was expecting only 17 guests including family members.

He was therefore a little surprised when eight police officers, some dressed in body armour, arrived with a riot van and helicopter support.

Mr Poole, a coach driver, claimed he was doing little more than lighting a barbecue for a few of his friends to celebrate, however, police feared it was to turn into a large-scale rave prompted by the internet invitations.
