Police have today released CCTV images of six men they would like to trace following a fight between West Ham and Leicester City fans.

The violent clash took place outside the King Power stadium after the Leicester City v West Ham match on October 27 at around 7.30pm.

No one was injured but CCTV footage captured the fight.

Investigating officers today arrested six men.

Three aged 29, 29, 48 in Leicester and three aged 21, 32 and 56 in London on suspicion of violent disorder.

Det Con Jack Thomas is said: “Our enquiries into identifying those responsible have been ongoing since October last year and we have been working closely with our colleagues in the Metropolitan Police. While no one has reported being injured the actions of those responsible are unacceptable.

“A number of people including families with young children were leaving the stadium after the match.
