Three previous appeals have already been issued to help officers trace individuals they believe could assist with the investigation and a large number of people have already been spoken to.

Police released a number of images of people they wanted to speak to several weeks ago and 48 men and one woman, aged between 15 and 62, have been arrested on suspicion of violent disorder.
