Police continue investigation into disorder at football match

Detectives investigating disorder linked to a Millwall v Everton fixture have released images of a further 18 people – believed to be Everton fans – who they would like to speak to in connection with incidents which occurred before, during and after the match on Saturday, 26 January.

Detective Sergeant Matt Simpson from the Met’s Public Order Investigation Team, said:“We are working closely with Merseyside Police to identify the individuals in these pictures, who we believe to be Everton fans and I would urge anyone who recognises an individual to get in touch.

“We had an excellent response from the public when we issued the first set of images two weeks ago and I would now like to appeal again for the public’s assistance in identifying these individuals, who we believe were involved in unacceptable disorder before, during and after the game. This was some of the worst football violence we have witnessed for some time, leaving one man with a life-changing injury to his face.”

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