Caught on camera: CCTV photos issued of fans wanted in connection with trouble after Millers' promotion sealing win at Gillingham

POLICE investigating trouble at the Millers’ promotion-sealing last match of the season have released CCTV images of fans they want to trace.

Fans invaded the pitch at Gillingham’s Priestfield Stadium after the final whistle in the match on April 30, where Rotherham United’s 2-0 victory took them back to the Championships.

Now Kent Police have issued photos of 18 people they are seeking in connection with the disorder, which included fighting and objects being thrown.

No arrests have been made to date so far.

Det Insp Pete Smith of Kent Police said: “Whilst emotions naturally run high during a football match, there is never any excuse for people to engage in acts of violence against one another – especially when in the presence of hundreds of children who were also at the game.

“People should be able to support their teams without being subjected to such unacceptable behaviour and our investigation into offences committed following the game is ongoing.

“We believe the people in the images may be able to assist us with our enquiries and urge anyone who recognises them to get in touch.”

Anyone who can help should call 01634 792209 quoting reference 46/108028/22 and the number associated with the image you recognise.

You can also call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
