Detectives have released images of two people they would like to trace in connection with violent disorder following a demonstration in Hackney.

At approximately 15:40hrs on Friday, 28 July, a demonstration took place on the highway of the A10 Kingsland Road, close to Middleton Road.

The demonstration, which was planned and initially peaceful, was used by a small number of people as an opportunity to commit disorder.

Several small fires were started, a number of items were placed in the road and objects including bottles were thrown at police.

The two people police are appealing to identify and trace are:

A black man [suspect two] with short black hair and unshaven, wearing a long-sleeved white shirt and glasses.

A light-skinned black man [suspect three], in his late teens, wearing a grey tracksuit with a hood.

Detective Sergeant Gareth Coffey, of Hackney CID, leading the investigation, said: "We would like to speak to those pictured in connection with the disorder that took place that day. Anyone who recognises any of those pictured is asked to contact the investigation team directly on 0207 275 3632."
