The Met Police have released the names and photos of nine men wanted over violent crimes across London.

Detective Superintendent Lee Hill said: “Some of the incidents in question have seen victims with some extremely serious injuries and we are asking the public to be additional eyes and ears to help us locate these people.

“We often get asked by the public how they can help keep their communities safe, and providing information such as this is enormously helpful both in preventing and detecting crime.”

Police have said that even if people are unwilling to pass on information, they would like them to consider how they would feel if a family member had been impacted from these men.

Det Supt Hill continued: "Violence, drug and other priority crimes such as burglary are of great concern to the communities of London. We are committed to tackling these issues robustly and those we suspect to be causing harm and attempting to evade justice. Help us to keep London safe."
