Cops appeal for help to find QPR and Millwall football thugs

Detectives release images of four men they would like to speak to in connection with brawl

DETECTIVES are appealing for help from Times readers to identify four men they would like to speak to in connection with a brawl between rival football fans.

Despite a heavy police presence, the QPR supporters hurled coins and plastic bottles, they also tore off plastic sheeting from the segregation gate.

One Millwall fan was arrested at the time but police have released the iamges of four men they would like to speak to. The men, one a QPR fan and the other three Millwall fans, are wanted by Lewisham police due to their alleged behaviour during the melee.

Inspector Chris Wood, from Lewisham Borough said: “The behaviour of those fans involved in this disorder was atrocious and could have led to fans and families being seriously injured.

“We appeal to the public to assist us in finding these men. If you know who they are please call us.
