Police have released a further set of CCTV images of suspects in their investigation into rioting in London.

The images were captured during the disorder in Lewisham, Wandsworth, Croydon, Haringey, Lambeth, Waltham Forest, Greenwich and Tower Hamlets.

Looting and violent disorder took place in those areas on 6 and 8 August.

The dedicated Metropolitan Police website is displaying the images of people it wants to speak to. The Flickr website is also hosting the photos.

More than 1,000 people have been charged and more than 1,800 arrested in connection with violence and disorder that took place on London's streets last week.

A 21-year-old man accused of robbing Malaysian student Asyraf Haziq, 20, of a portable Sony PlayStation and Nokia mobile phone during riots in Barking has appeared at Wood Green Crown Court.

The case of Reece Donovan, of Chadwell Heath, Romford, Essex, has been adjourned until 10 October.

Mr Haziq was on his way to a friend's house on 8 August when he was attacked by rioters in Barking, leaving him with a broken jaw.

Robbers posing as Good Samaritans mugged Mr Haziq after helping the student up.

Londoners thanked

Three arrests were made on Friday after an appeal on BBC One's Crimewatch programme to name and shame troublemakers.

A 17-year-old boy has been charged with arson and violent disorder at a council building on the High Road in Tottenham, north London, on 7 August.

And two girls aged 15 were detained on suspicion of violent disorder and burglary on 8 August in Clarence Road, Hackney, east London.

Police said nearly 60 calls had been received after footage from the riots was shown on Crimewatch on Thursday night.

Scotland Yard's acting commissioner Tim Godwin has published an open letter thanking Londoners for their support after the disorder.

Record numbers of people had applied to be police volunteers and special constables in the past week, he said.
