London Riots: Can you help police track down these people?

The fifth selection of images of those people who shamed Newham have been released

Police, Newham Council and the Newham Recorder have joined forces to help track down those whose actions shocked us.

The Council and the Recorder are publishing pictures taken from CCTV images of people Newham Police want to speak to in connection with criminality around the recent disturbances.

There will be more images issued as officers examine the footage taken from in and around Upton Park and in Stratford, East Ham, Canning Town and Beckton.

If you recognise anyone pictured or have information about the violence and disorder we saw on our streets, contact Newham Police’s 24-hour intelligence unit on (020) 8217 5078.

Newham Mayor Sir Robin Wales has announced a series of measures designed to tackle the disorder we saw on our streets.

Sir Robin said: “What we’ve seen taking place in Newham and elsewhere across the country is completely and utterly unacceptable. There is no excuse and there must be no repeat of scenes we all saw on our television screens.

“Thankfully our borough was not as badly affected as others in London and elsewhere, because of the strength of togetherness and cohesion in our community.

“Nevertheless, I am strongly committed to taking robust action against anyone found to have been taking part in the recent violence and looting. We today published a special edition of the Newham Mag containing the first images, with more to come, of those suspected of involvement in the disturbances. We are offering a reward through Crimestoppers for information from our community that identifies suspects and helps bring them to justice.

Sir Robin is working to protect Newham and its residents using the council’s existing powers. From rewarding those who provide information about crime that leads to a criminal conviction to seeking compensation costs from vandals, he has pledged to do whatever it takes to ensure that people think twice before disrupting neighbourhoods.
