Police release photos of suspects in north Belfast disorder investigation

The PSNI has released images of 10 people they wish to speak to in relation to disorder in north Belfast last summer.

Police said their appeal relates to a number of incidents and attacks on officers between 31 July and 8 August 2019.

Detective Chief Inspector Mary White said: "Over the course of a number of days, there were a small number of people in the area who were intent on causing incidents of disorder and attacking police officers.

"We remain committed to identifying those involved in a range of incidents across Belfast last summer and we will be relentless in our pursuit in order to bring these offenders before the courts.

"By releasing these images I am hopeful that the wider community will help us identify these individuals. It is in everybody's interest - as well as in the interest of justice - that those responsible are dealt with appropriately and I would urge anyone who may have any information to bring it forward.

"I also encourage the persons within these pictures to contact police directly. In doing so they will minimise the impact on themselves, their family and their community."

"Anyone who may be able to identify any of these individuals or provide any information about them such as their name, address or age is urged to contact detectives at Musgrave Police Station on 101.

"Alternatively, information can be provided anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111."
