London Riots: First images of those who shamed Newham

The first images of those people who shamed Newham have been released.

Now 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.
