The Metropolitan Police is appealing for help in finding "high harm" suspects ahead of Christmas.

Police say the drive to arrest outstanding offenders is part of ongoing Winter Nights enforcement activity to bear down on violence over the festive period.

A Met Police spokesperson said: "This and other efforts are starting to have an impact on serious violence in London with data this year showing positive reductions across serious violent crime categories including homicides decrease by seven per cent (nine less victims), knife crime decreased by 32 per cent (4,613 fewer offences) and gun crime decrease by 38 per cent (738 fewer offences).

"Despite these reductions, we are not complacent and know there is more to do. 

"Communities also have a vital role to play in tackling violent crime and we urge anyone who may have information to tell us, so that we can tackle violence together.

"We need information about crime or those who carry a weapon, or those that exploit people for gain or revenge, while putting young people’s lives at risk.

"Community intelligence can be used to great effect to not only detect, but also prevent crime, keep London safe and save young lives."

 Superintendent Thomas Naughton, of the Violent Crime Task Force said:  “With Christmas around 12 days away, we are increasing our efforts to arrest these individuals and apprehend them for their crimes.

“These offenders have caused harm and distress to their victims and it is our priority to arrest them to prevent them from causing further offences.

“To those who are wanted our message is clear – we will not stop looking for you until you are arrested.

"We will use technology and tactics to catch up to you - you won’t be able to evade justice forever.

"Do the right thing and hand yourself in to the nearest police station to prevent Christmas being ruined for your family and friends.

“We are always carrying out arrest enquiries and bringing offenders to justice so that we can keep everyone safe, but we also need the help of the public.

"If you know where any of these offenders could be, or happen to see them while you are out and about then I urge you to let us know, or inform the independent charity Crimestoppers as soon as possible.

"Help us to keep our communities safe this festive period.”

Call police immediately on 101 or 999 if its an emergency if any of the wanted offenders are spotted.
