THE public were last night urged to keep playing their part to catch the rioters who rampaged on the streets of Merseyside.
More than 100 calls and emails have come into the police investigation team since the trouble early last week.
But there are still many rioters who have yet to be caught, and the investigation team last night called on people to look again at the images they have released.
The crime-fighting charity, Crimestoppers, recorded its busiest-ever week last week as people rang the anonymous 0800 555 111 hotline to tell what they knew.
And police have also had numerous calls naming those thought to be involved.
Det Supt Ian Mulcahey, leading the investigation, said: “I would like to thank all the members of the public who have come forward to help identify offenders and bring them to justice.
"We have received a really positive response from the public and we continue to act upon all information received.
“The public still have a very important part to play and I would continue to urge everyone to look at the images in the media and tell us who these offenders are and where we can find them so they can be brought to justice.”
The Merseyside bureau of Crimestoppers took 10 times the number of calls about public order when compared to a normal week. Many people rang in to name the yobs pictured in the media from police CCTV.
Gary Murray, Crimestoppers North West Regional manager, said: “I would like to thank the Merseyside public for their tremendous response to this public disorder in contacting the charity with information about those who seek to destroy our communities.
“Crimestoppers gives the public a chance to report crime anonymously and to really make a positive difference to their communities. I would urge the public to continue to contact us with information about those who have been involved in the riots and other crime in Merseyside.”
