Police investigating violence by Bristol City football fans at a match in Cardiff say have identified nine out of 16 people they want to question after releasing their photos.

There were incidents of disorder and criminal damage near Cardiff City Stadium in the city centre in February.

South Wales Police want to identify seven men and they are also trying to trace another as a result of the probe.

The disorder did not involve home fans.

South Wales Police launched Operation Panther to identify those involved in the incidents on 16 February.

Football liaison officer PC Christian Evans said: "We are delighted with the result of the appeal so far but are still seeking the public's help in identifying the remaining seven individuals.

"As a result of our ongoing investigation we have also identified another man who we wish to trace in connection with this incident."

South Wales Police have asked anyone with information to contact Pc Evans on 07584 883154 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 quoting Operation Panther.
