More CCTV images have been released by police after riots across parts of Merseyside earlier this week.

Thirty-eight people were arrested overnight for public order offences as well as assault, criminal damage and possession of an offensive weapon.

Merseyside Police have now arrested more than 110 people over the disorder and more than 60 have been charged.

Officers were out on the streets on Thursday night, stopping people who were acting suspiciously.

Large gangs of youths torched cars and damaged property on Smithdown Road, Wavertree, on Tuesday night.

More than 200 people were involved in stand-offs with police and there were reports of many throwing missiles at the emergency services.

Four fire engines were taken out of service after they were damaged in Lawrence Road.

Disturbances also broke out in Toxteth, Bootle and Birkenhead.

Police first released images of people they wanted to trace on Thursday.

The force is urging anyone with information to contact them.

Assistant Chief Constable Andy Ward said: "The public have an important part to play and I would urge everyone to look at the images in the media and tell us who these offenders are and where we can find them so they can be brought to justice."
