Detectives investigating violent disorder in Hackney on Friday, 28 July have released four new images of people they would like to speak to.

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 four people police are appealing to identify and trace are:

Suspect 4: A black male wearing a ‘North Face’ puffer jacket with the hood worn up.
