Thames Valley Police is continuing to appeal for witnesses and information after a small number of incidents of public disorder in Milton Keynes last week.

Thankfully no one was hurt in any of the incidents that happened in the area, but officers are carrying out a thorough investigation to trace those responsible for the incidents of disorder we experienced.

Area Commander, Superintendent Nikki Ross, said: “I wanted to take this opportunity to publicly thank the vast majority of MK residents for their help and support last week.

“As you can imagine it was a difficult time for the local police and the relatively few incidents of disorder in Milton Keynes had the potential to escalate.

“The public used Twitter and Facebook to not only keep abreast of what was going from, but also to update us on information they had received and help to inform us of where to send our resources.

“We found it a very useful resource to also answer any questions, alleviate and concerns and keep you up-to-date with any police activity in your area.

“In addition, members of the public assisted officers in Bletchley and helped to secure the arrest of the main offenders.

“Over the next few weeks a team of investigators will be reviewing all of the CCTV footage available and will be seeking to arrest all outstanding offenders.

“If you have any information to help with the police investigation, the please contact the police via 0845 8 505 505.

“We are appealing for the help of people who might have been in the area, who may have home CCTV systems, or taken pictures on their mobile phones. If anyone has any images that might assist our with our enquiries then I ask that they email them through to the inbox: MiltonKeynesDisorder@thamesvalley.pnn.police.uk

“I would again like to thank our local communities, who have been fantastic in co-operating and supporting the police.”
