PremierLeague-News.Com - A senior officer said the investigation is one of the biggest the force has ever carried out
PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Seven more people have been charged following disorder outside Bristol's Bridewell Police Station. Another person has been charged with a different offence of outraging public decency, Avon and Somerset Police said in a statement today (Thursday, May 13). The development comes after a man was separately charged with riot and arson last month, and a senior officer is expecting more people to face charges in the coming days. What started as a peaceful Kill the Bill protest ended with shocking scenes of violence on the night of Sunday, March 21, with police officers injured, police vehicles torched and windows at the station smashed. Police launched a major public appeal to identify people they wanted to speak to in connection with the disorder, and have now announced a major development in their investigation. The Crown Prosecution Service South West Complex Casework Unit has authorised charges, following a review of evidence submitted by the force. Most of the suspects are from the Bristol area, with an age range of between 18 and 46. The youngest, from Birmingham, has not been named by police.
