Pictures of 213 people who may have been involved in the riots have been uploaded to Flickr and police are appealing to the public to help identify them.

Images were obtained from more than 200,000 hours of CCTV footage and police hope their release will lead to more arrests in the run up to Christmas.

Images of possible rioters are posted on the Met’s Flickr account along with information about where the “serious disorder and violence” with which the individual may be associated took place.

Scotland Yard also revealed that more than 3,200 people had been arrested over the riots in the capital and action had been taken against more than 2,000.

Many identifications came about after members of the public came forward.

Commander Steve Rodhouse said: “I would like to thank the public for continuing to assist us with this investigation. Without their help positive identifications on several images would not have been made.

“Four months on from the disorder my team of officers remain absolutely committed to identifying, arresting and charging those involved in the criminality that took place.

“The investigation is a huge challenge and one that will continue for some time to come, but I want to reassure London’s communities that we are determined to bring those who committed these outrageous crimes to justice and more arrests will follow.

“I urge anyone with any information to come forward.”
