Police investigating a serious disorder that broke out between teenagers in Birmingham have released CCTV footage images of people they'd like to speak to.

A large-scale fight broke out on the high street, near Boots, on October 2 with more than twenty people.

Two men aged 18 and 19 suffered knife injuries to their arm and legs, while a 17 year old was stabbed in the chest. 

Detective Inspector Greg Evans said: "What happened was totally unacceptable: a large-scale fight involving upwards of 20 people in the city centre in broad daylight.

"We know that at least one offender was armed with a knife and believe that belts and a metal bar were also brandished as weapons.

"We are releasing these additional CCTV images, some of which clearly show the people we want to speak to. What I’d say to these individuals is that 'we’ll find you' so do the right thing and contact us so you can give us
your version of events.

"If anyone recognises any of the faces then I’d urge them to contact us directly or via the charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.

"If anyone else has photos or video of the disorder then I’d ask them to also contact us as they could hold vital information."
