West Midlands Police have released an image of three men they are tracing after triumphant Aston Villa fans streamed onto the pitch at Villa Park after their side's defeat of West Brom.

Detectives investigating disorder at the FA Cup clash on 7 March 2015 have quizzed a number of men over the incident. A total of six men voluntarily attended police stations across the West Midlands over the weekend for questioning following a CCTV appeal to trace 11 suspected of being involved.

A 45-year-old from Hollywood and a 38-year-old from Sheldon were interviewed on suspicion of pitch invasion during the game, while a 35-year-old from Oldbury was questioned over a public order offence on Friday, 20 March.

On Saturday, 22 March, a 50-year-old from Great Barr and a 20-year-old from Coventry – both accused of storming the pitch before the final whistle – were interviewed by officers, along with a 19-year-old from Rowley Regis in connection with a bottle throwing incident.

A further two men – one aged 22 and another aged 24 – have been identified in connection with the investigation and will be questioned in due course over public order offences.

Police are still working to identify a further three people suspected of being involved and are keen to speak to those in the images below.

Detective Inspector Paul Joyce, who is leading the investigation, said: "Our inquiries are still at an early stage and those questioned will be spoken to again. Some of the behaviour seen on the day was completely unacceptable and our review into hundreds of hours of footage from the ground continues."

Anyone who was at the game and took footage or photos of offences being committed can send them to the investigation team via a private message to the Birmingham Police Facebook page.
