Police appealing for help in identifying a man about an incident in which 30 youths were reported being abusive.

A spokesman for the police said: "Earlier today we asked for help identifying two people in relation to a disorder incident in Burnley last month.

"A woman we released a CCTV image of, who we wanted to speak to as a potential witness, has since been identified.

"We are continuing to appeal for help identifying the man, pictured, as part of our enquiries."

It happened on Thurston Street at around 6pm on April 5.

Police were initially called to reports of antisocial behaviour, where approximately 30 youths were reported to be congregating and being abusive to residents.

After attending the area, police received further reports of an assault and an allegation of racial abuse.

An investigation was launched and nine people have since been arrested. They are an 18-year-old man, four girls aged 17, 16, 15 and 14 and boys aged 17, 16, 15 and 14, and all from Burnley.

All those arrested have since been released on bail, pending further enquiries.

A spokesman for the police said: "You may remember last month we released an appeal following reports of disorder in the Bank Hall area of Burnley.

"We now need your help identifying two further people as part of the same investigation.

"We would like to speak to the man, pictured on the right, as part of our enquiries. We would also like to speak to the woman, pictured left, as we believe she may have witnessed the disorder and could have information about what happened."

DC Rik Clough, of Burnley Police, said: “We would like to thank those members of the public who responded to our first appeal and provided information that helped with our enquiries.

“We would now like to speak to the two people in the attached images and are asking anyone who recognises them to let us know.

“The man is being sought in connection with our investigation.

“We would also like to speak to the woman as we believe she may have witnessed some of the incident and may have information about what occurred."

"If you have any other information about what happened, please get in touch with us.”

Anyone with information is asked to get in touch on 101 quoting log 1173 of April 5th.
