A total of 40 officers, several journalists and dozen of campaigners were either injured or assaulted.

After a peaceful start protesting against the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill, the violence ran long into the night.

Detectives have so far arrested 80 people in connection with the riot, and an additional person has been voluntarily interviewed.

Of those 80, a total of 28 people were charged, although charges against one person were dropped for medical reasons.

A force spokesperson said: “If you recognise any of the people in these images, please call 101 and tell the call handler you want to provide information about Operation Harley.”

Speaking previously, former Chief Constable Andy Marsh said: “This will undoubtedly lead to one of the biggest appeals for wanted suspects that we’ve ever done. There will be significant consequences for behaviour like this and we will leave no stone unturned.”

If you have any additional information, footage or photos of the incident, you can also send it to police by using this Bristol disorder form.
