TEN people have been arrested in connection with the pitch invasions during England's football clash with Turkey at the Stadium of Light in Sunderland.

Northumbria Police and the Football Association came together last Wednesday to launch a hunt for the 29 supporters who ran on to the pitch after England's goals in the 2-0 win.

The force published a rogues gallery on its website to launch Operation Doorstep. It aims to bring to justice all those who caused trouble on April 2, both in and out of the ground.

The crackdown follows warnings from UEFA that England could be thrown out of European competitions if fans misbehave again.

Information has been flooding in to both the website and the incident room.

Assistant Chief Constable David Warcup yesterday praised those who had passed on information about the pitch invaders.

He said: "We would like to thank everyone who has taken the time to look at the photographs and have been in touch with information.

"There are now just four people still to be identified and we are confident we will soon find them.

"The success in identifying these people so quickly clearly demonstrates that the public want to help police in stamping out football hooliganism."

Detectives are still urging people to get in touch to identify the remaining individuals. The incident room can be contacted on 0191-563 6677, or people can contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555111. Alternatively, visit the website at: www.northumbria.police.uk/ football
