POLICE have released a further 15 images of men they want to speak after a demonstration descended into violence in Newcastle last month.

Disorder broke out on Saturday June 13, when hundreds of people gathered – with police separating demonstrators supporting the Black Lives Matter movement and counter-protestors claiming to defend Grey's Monument.

A wide-ranging investigation has so far seen Northumbria Police make 44 arrests.

Two previous appeals to identify individuals who may be able to help with the investigation resulted in officers speaking to a number of people.

Now police are again asking for help, as they believe those who feature in the latest set of images may too be able to assist with their inquiries.

Assistant Chief Constable Scott Hall said: “The public response to our appeals has been fantastic and has led to us identifying a number of people we needed to speak to.

“Our investigation is very much ongoing and we are again asking for your help – if you recognise anyone pictured in the latest set of images please do get in touch with us.”

He added: “The right to lawful protest is a key part of any democracy which the police will uphold and facilitate. However, violence and disorder is completely unacceptable and will not be tolerated.”

As part of the ongoing investigation, 43 males and one female, aged between 15 and 62, have been arrested on suspicion of violent disorder. They have all either been released under investigation or on bail.

Anyone who is pictured or recognises someone who is, contact Northumbria Police via the Tell Us Something page on Northumbria Police’s website or call 101. When doing so, quote incident log 238 130620.
