Detectives have released 13 images of people they would like to identify in connection to violent disorder near the Iranian Embassy on Sunday 25 September.
The investigation started on Sunday night following the unacceptable scenes which led to Met officers requiring medical attention, with some attending hospital.
Commander Karen Findlay, responsible for the Met’s Public Order Crime Team, said:
“Everyone who plans and seeks to lawfully protest, and communities in the vicinity of such protest, deserve to feel safe.
“Nobody should be faced with the escalation of disorder we saw on Sunday.
“We won’t tolerate members of the public, or officers who are doing all they can to maintain and regain order, being injured in any circumstance, and we are now doing everything we can to make sure those who committed the violent offences are brought to justice.
“This begins with identifying those with the blatant intent to cause injury by recklessly throwing items including pieces of masonry and bottles.
“We need the public’s help and support to identify these people. If you recognise anyone from viewing the images, then please come forward and contact us as soon as possible. You can do this anonymously.”
Anyone who recognises any of these people or has any information about them is urged to contact police on 101 or tweet @MetCC and quote ‘Op Lakselva’.
