Police investigating looting at a store in Liverpool during last month's riots have released CCTV images of those suspected of being involved.

The attack took place at The North Face store, on Paradise Street in Liverpool One, at about 02:20 BST on 9 August.

The images show a large gang of young men who used golf clubs to smash their way in, before helping themselves to thousands of pounds worth of clothing.

Anyone with information is being urged to contact Merseyside Police.

The force said the group broke into the store and then escaped towards School Lane, where they were confronted by a police patrol car.

They then ran off in different directions, dropping some of the clothing as they fled.

Most of those involved were dressed in dark clothing and several of them were wearing dark padded body warmer style jackets, police said.

Det Sgt Graham Southern said: "I would urge anyone who may have information which could help us bring these offenders to justice to come forward.

"Overnight on Monday, 8 August, and in to the morning of Tuesday, 9 August, there had been incidents of violent disorder elsewhere in the city.

"The offenders may well have tried to sell the stolen clothing to other members of the public."

Anybody who may have been offered stolen North Face clothing is being urged to contact police.
