Do you know this youth? Police release photo of suspected Hackney rioter

This is the face of a suspected rioter police are still hunting in connection with the violence in Hackney on August 8.

Detectives from Operation Withern have already released scores of photographs showing wanted criminals involved in the unrest in the borough.

And many have already filed through the courts as the total number of people charged over the riots in London reached more than 1,085 this week.

The Metropolitan Police Service has set up a gallery on Flickr of suspected rioters they want to speak to.

Anyone with information about the young man pictured should call the Major Investigation Team on 020 8345 4142, quoting photo reference S241. Anyone can report crime and provide information anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
