Images of suspects in last week's Woolwich riots have been released.

Police are asking the public to help identify those in the pictures who are believed to have taken part in looting and criminal damage in last Monday's attacks.


The images include two men (above and left) wanted in connection with the arson that saw Wetherspoon's Great Harry pub destroyed.

The night of violence saw shops, including bookmakers, phone shops, banks and clothes shops, targeted by looters and violence.

Officers have also appealed for information on the following people in connection with damage to Woolwich town centre, as well as for attacks on police and damage to police vehicles.



Greenwich's Borough Commander Richard Wood said: "The sheer criminal behaviour we witnessed last week in Woolwich and other areas across the borough is utterly unacceptable and I will do everything in my power to ensure that those involved are caught."

Anyone with information should call Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
