As the clean up around south and east London continued today after a relatively peaceful night on Tuesday, the Metropolitan Police have renewed appeals for information about all those whose images were caught on CCTV cameras during the arson, looting and violence on Monday night. A total of more than 760 people have already been arrested.
Further images were released today of suspected looters and rioters in London on top of those which were issued on Tuesday. The Met have also set up a dedicated webpage displaying the images of people being sought The link is: http://www.met.police.uk/disordersuspects/
In addition Flickr is hosting the same photos so that the public have as many opportunities as possible to help the MPS identify those who committed violent and criminal acts on London’s streets. The link is http://www.flickr.com/photos/metropolitanpolice/sets/72157627267892973/
A spokesman for the Metropolitan police said: ”If anyone recognises individuals in the photographs or has any information about the violence and disorder that has occurred they should contact the Major Investigation Team on 020 8345 4142. Alternatively anyone can report crime and provide information anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
Thousands of extra police were expected to remain on the streets of London again tonight, with all leave still cancelled and the Special Constabulary drafted in for support. Magistrates courts sat all night on Tuesday to deal with the dozens of arrests.
Police have also named the man who died after being found shot in a car in Croydon on Monday night. He was Trevor Ellis, 26, of Brixton Hill, south London. His body was discovered in a vehicle in Duppas Hill Road at its junction with Warrington Road, Croydon. He was taken to St George’s Hospital with a gunshot wound to his head.
