Police have released CCTV images of eight thugs who clashed with police on Tuesday night.

Those pictured are thought to be part of the 40-strong gang that tried to loot the Grafton centre on Tuesday, and attacked cops on Midsummer common. Two officers were injured as louts threw missiles during the skirmish.

Police suspect Tuesday’s attack was a ‘copycat’ incident inspired by the violence and looting that gripped London on Monday night.

Three teenagers aged 16, 18 and 19, were arrested at the scene of Tuesday night’s clash, as well as two men aged 20 and 28. All were from the Cambridge area.

A further four arrests were also made today, after police yesterday released images of suspects. A 22-year-old man was arrested this afternoon, while two boys, both aged 15, were arrested this morning. A fourth man has also just been arrested, but police have yet to release his age.

Despite the enthusiastic response from the public following the release of pictures, the police are still after those pictured below:

Do you know these suspects?

Detective Chief Inspector Chris Mead said: “We are keen to hear from anyone who recognises these people. I would also urge the people who are pictured to contact police themselves.”

If you recognise any of those pictured, contact police on 03454 564 564.

Cambridgeshire police said there are 100 riot police on standby to deal with any further violence, but no incidents have been reported since Tuesday’s clash.
