Police investigating disorder at a 'Free Tommy Robinson protest in London are appealing for help identifying 10 people.
Scotland Yard said more than 20 officers were injured after Scaffolding, barriers and glass bottles were thrown at police in June 2018 at a 'Free Tommy Robinson' demonstration in Whitehall.
The Met launches a special operation to investigate the violence which saw officers from the force's Public Order crime team comb video footage and CCTV attempting to identify individuals they wished to speak to.
Detectives from Operation Augusta have released new images of individuals officers are keen to identify as part of the investigation.
Detective Sergeant Matt Hearing, who leads the Operation Augusta team, said:
“We are extremely keen to identify these individuals, who were involved in serious disorder which resulted in a number of police officers getting injured.
"Whilst we will always facilitate lawful protest, the actions of some individuals on that day showed a total disregard for the law and it is important that all those involved are brought to justice”
