New images released over Bristol disorder

New images and CCTV footage of people police want to trace in connection with disorder in Bristol have been released.

Unrest began in Bristol on Monday night and there was smaller scale disorder in the city on Tuesday.

Police said 45 people had been arrested over offences including violent disorder, criminal damage and assaulting police officers.

Extra police would be on patrol on Friday and Saturday night, the force spokesman said.

Detectives were examining more than 800 hours of video footage taken from over 100 cameras in Bristol, he added.

Facebook 'mugshots'

Avon and Somerset Police's Det Ch Insp Will White, who is leading the investigation, said: "So far we have arrested 45 people, of which 19 of those have been charged or been cautioned.

"We have many more images we want the public to view on our website."

The force has also started a Facebook page showing "mugshots" of people they want to talk to and video footage of various incidents.

Mr White asked anyone who recognised the people pictured to contact police.

On Monday night about 200 people were believed to have been involved in the trouble in areas including Cabot Circus and Broadmead, and the Stokes Croft and St Werburghs areas.

BBC reporter Clinton Rogers, who spent Tuesday night in the city, said there was some tension on the streets but it appeared quieter than the pictures he saw from Monday night.

The disturbances followed days of rioting in London which began on Saturday after a peaceful protest over the fatal shooting by police of a man in Tottenham.
