British Transport Police are today releasing images in connection with a large-scale fight at Preston railway station.
 
The incident happened shortly after 7pm on Saturday 22 February.
 
In June, investigating officers arrested eight people for their suspected involvement.
 
Two groups consisting of more than 20 young men are reported to have been involved in the fight which happened on platform three at the station – the fight is believed to have been organised.
 
A second incident involving the two groups is reported to have happened in Preston City Centre.
 
On Saturday 13 June, eight males, aged between 16 and 21-years-old, were arrested in the East Lancashire area in connection with the fight.
 
Now, officers would like to speak to the people in the images who may have information that could help further their investigation into the fight.
