"My message to those involved in the disorder and criminality is that you will not get away with it. We have a huge team working on this investigation and we will find you," Commander Steve Rodhouse, who is in charge of the investigation, said.
"The investigation is a huge challenge and one that we will continue to tackle for some time to come, but I want to reassure London's communities that we are committed to proactively targeting people who were involved and will continue to ensure that justice is done I urge anyone with any information to come forward," he added.
In response to the disorder a major investigation team was launched by the Metropolitan Police Service, codenamed Operation Withern.
