London riots: Photo gallery of Hackney suspects who are wanted by police

These are the faces of suspects wanted by police in connection with terror on the streets of Hackney including torching cars, smashing up businesses and looting shops during the London riots last month.

Police have released more than 100 images of suspects they want to identify and are appealing for readers’ help.

The move comes after 10 people were arrested following their images being published by the Hackney Gazette newspaper, owned by London24 publisher Archant.

Readers contacted police to identify some suspects, while others saw their own photo in the paper and turned themselves in.

In total, 184 people have been arrested in Hackney and 127 of those have been charged.
