Police in Bedfordshire have released photos of some of the people still being traced after investigations into the trouble at the Luton Town v York City game on May 3.
Following the release of twenty photographs of people sought in relation to incidents at the Luton Town v York City football match in May this year, the list has been reduced to just five!
To their credit, some of those sought have handed themselves in at police stations.
After the end of the game, some Luton fans came on to the pitch and coins and other missiles were thrown at York supporters, police and club stewards. Outside the ground, goods belonging to a hardware shop in Dunstable Road were stolen, damaged or used as missiles.
Seven people were arrested on the day of the game, but since then police have been poring through hours of CCTV and other footage of the play-off game.
There have been 30 more arrests in the last three months and 22 files are with the Crown Prosecution Service who are considering the evidence. In the meantime they have interim bail conditions not to go to the football club.
Of the other eight, six were released with no further action against them and two have been dealt with via the courts for public order and breach of Football Banning Orders.
Officers have been unable to trace the last few people they want to question, so in order to find them, Det Insp Mark Upex, of Luton CID, has authorised the release of these twenty pictures.Officers involved in this investigation can be contacted on
