Detectives are currently exploring a number of lines of enquiry to identify other individuals who participated in the event or were in the area at the time who they would like to speak to as part of their investigation.

Detective Sergeant Lou Birchall said:- "A large number of arrests have already been made, but we are not resting on our laurels. Our investigation will continue until we have done everything possible to identify and trace everyone who may have been involved in the disorder or who committed criminal offences. This disorder caused a great deal of disruption, damage and panic in Liverpool, with many shoppers, workers and visitors to the City Centre affected. The Police will always look to facilitate lawful, peaceful protest or organised public events, but disorder and violence is not acceptable and will not be tolerated by us. My investigation team are keen to hear from the people pictured in the photographs or from anyone who knows them as they may have information that could help progress our on going enquiries into the events that day. If you are that person or you are someone who knows them, please come forward. You can call Merseyside Police on:- 0800 230 0600 or leave information anonymously with Crimestoppers on:- 0800 555 111."
