Police examining CCTV after Millwall disorder

Large-scale violence and disorder at football matches is completely unacceptable. People attending matches expect to be able to do so in a safe and friendly environment.

We have had an excellent response from the public, who have identified people in nine of the 10 images already released. Some have since handed themselves in to police, and to date, we have arrested 23 people. Three have been charged.

The investigation team is working through many more calls and CCTV to identify all those involved in the disorder. We expect to make further arrests.

Our message is clear. Violence at football is unacceptable. If you were involved in the violence come forward and speak with us. We will pursue all those responsible.

– Detective Chief Inspector Andy Barnes
