Met Police releases images of 12 people wanted following pro-Palestine protests in London

Commander Colin Wingrove said the Met Police will take a "zero-tolerance approach to any behaviour which crosses the lines into criminality".

Detectives have released images of 12 people suspected of committing offences at two pro-Palestine protests in London this month.

The potential offences range from using discriminatory language and causing an affray, at the protests held on October 14 and 28.

A Met Police spokesperson said thousands of officers were present during the events, which they clarified were “largely peaceful”.

Commander Colin Wingrove said: “We will take a zero-tolerance approach to any behaviour which crosses the lines into criminality.

“We know that many people in London are feeling vulnerable following the terrorist attacks on Israel and subsequent conflict with Hamas.

“It is completely unacceptable that a minority of people have used peaceful protest to foster hate and division.

“We know that others will be appalled as well and we ask for their help to identify these individuals and report other suspected hate crimes.”

Officers are asking anyone with information to contact police by calling 0208 246 9386 quoting Operation Brocks or tweeting @MetCC.
