Following football-related violence in Nottingham city centre, police have released CCTV images of five men they want to speak to. After receiving reports a number of football fans were involved in violent disorder, Nottinghamshire Police attended The Cross Keys pub on Byard Lane.

Getting into a dispute with Nottingham Forest fans who were inside the pub, it was reported a group of Leicester City supporters started throwing bottles and street furniture. It happened at around 3.15pm on February 6, in the lead up to the FA Cup clash between the Reds and the Foxes at The City Ground later that day.

Police have been carrying out extensive enquiries since then and have identified a number of people they want to trace after trawling through CCTV footage filmed outside the bar.

Investigator Victoria Batterham, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “We would ask that anyone who recognises any of the men pictured please gets in touch with us as soon as possible, as we believe they could have information that could assist our investigation. Nottinghamshire Police takes all reports of violence extremely seriously and will never tolerate any incidents of this nature taking place anywhere across our county.

“It really should go without saying but there is absolutely no excuse for anyone to ever behave in this manner, especially in the middle of the day and in a busy part of the city centre where young children could’ve been present. If anyone has any information that could assist us with our enquiries into this case, we’d ask that they get in touch with us immediately by calling 101, quoting incident 182 of February 6, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
