Images released of police want to speak to in relation to mass brawl linked to Teddington murder inquiry
Images have been released of five men police want to speak to in relation to a mass brawl linked to a murder inquiry.
A fight that broke out outside the Royal Oak, in Teddington High Street, at 9.50pm on Saturday, November 10, last year.
Residents said they watched from their houses as noise from a group of about 40 people drinking got louder and escalated into a street brawl, with people smashing glass and throwing punches.
Two men were taken to hospital after the fight and one of them suffered serious head injuries.
Police linked the incident with the death of St Mary’s University College student Patrick Lawless, from Twickenham, who collapsed in nearby Field Lane at 12.30am on Sunday, November 11.
A murder investigation was launched after the 20-year-old died in hospital from head injuries.
Five men were arrested in connection with the incidents.
Two have been released with no further action to be taken.
The remaining three men, who are all in their early 20s, have been released on bail and are due to return in the next two months pending further inquiries.
If you can identify any of the people pictured please contact the Metropolitan Police Service Serious Crime Command Major Investigation Team 11 Incident Room on 020 8721 4155.
