Detectives have released images of 12 people they would like to speak to in connection with widespread disorder that occurred before, during, and after a Millwall v Everton match on Saturday, 26 January.

Detective Sergeant Matt Simpson, from the Met’s Public Order Investigation team, said: “The disorder which broke out on Saturday, 26 January was some of the worst football violence we have witnessed for a very long time. It left one man with a life-changing injury to his face, and caused chaos in the streets.

“A post-incident investigation was launched, through which we are working hard to identify those involved in this completely unacceptable and shocking behaviour.

“We have today released images of 12 individuals we are attempting to trace in connection with this incident. The public can play a huge role in helping police, especially by assisting us in identifying wanted individuals. You are our eyes and ears.

“The public have undoubtedly helped us bring many wanted offenders to justice in the past, and we hope they can assist us in this investigation.

“Anyone who recognises the individuals in these images should call police on 020 8246 9386 quoting the image number. Alternatively they can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111. You can also tweet police via @MetCC.”
