Three men, believed to be Everton fans, have been arrested by police investigating the widespread FA Cup disorder in January.

The trio were arrested on suspicion of violent disorder in Liverpool and Warrington.

A thirty-five year old was arrested by police in Liverpool, while another two men, aged nineteen and forty-nine, were arrested in Warrington.

They have all been released on bail to return to a Liverpool police station early next month.

A 27-year-old man was arrested on Tuesday, 5 February on suspicion of wounding with intent, attempted grievous bodily harm (GBH) and violent disorder. He was bailed to return to a central London police station on a date in early April.

The violence at the Everton v Millwall game on January 26 has been described by police as some of the worst football-related hooliganism in London for years.

Detective Sergeant Matt Simpson, from the Met’s Public Order Investigation Team, said: “We are working closely with Merseyside Police to identify the individuals in these pictures, who we believe to be Everton fans and I would urge anyone who recognises an individual to get in touch.

“We had an excellent response from the public when we issued the first set of images in relation to this incident, and I would now like to appeal again for the public’s assistance in identifying these individuals, who we believe were involved in unacceptable disorder before, during and after the game.

“This was some of the worst football violence we have witnessed for some time, leaving one man with a life-changing injury to his face.”

Police asked anyone who recognises the individuals in the images to call them on 020 8246 9386.
