CCTV images of 12 men and one woman have been issued by police following the mass gathering of Liverpool fans at the Pier Head last month.

On Friday, June 26, several thousand people celebrated Liverpool FC winning the Premier League title, but there were a number of reported assaults, criminal damage and drug offences.

The CCTV pictures show various people who were in the area of Victoria Street at around 2.30am in the early hours of Saturday, June 27, following the initial gathering.

Detective Chief Inspector Cheryl Rhodes said: “Our dedicated team continues to investigate in detail the disgraceful scenes which happened in Liverpool city bentre. We’re looking for a minority of people intent on committing crime and anti-social behaviour, whose actions marred the good nature of the majority.

“Extensive enquiries continue and we’ll keep issuing images and appeals to identify suspects and witnesses as we work our way through the evidence available to us. These particular people were in and around Victoria Street later on in the night after the initial Pierhead celebrations.

“At this location, incidents of disorder occurred, during which items were thrown and injuries were caused to officers, and damage to vehicles. They may have important information to assist us.”

The Champion reported how Matthew Egglesden, 19, whose address was given as Turning Lane, Scarisbrick, Southport was arrested after footage appeared on social media which appeared to show a firework being directed towards the Liver Building. He is due to appear at Liverpool Crown Court on July 27.
