DETECTIVES trying to track down soccer yobs who brought terror to Huddersfield have now made 26 arrests.
And they expect to trap more, after releasing new CCTV images of suspects they want to trace.
The hunt for the suspects has continued this week with a series of carefully-planned raids on homes and businesses in both Huddersfield and Leeds.
Police yesterday carried out a second day of early-morning raids which resulted in seven arrests – three from Huddersfield.
Those arrests brought the total to 26. The arrested men and youths range in age from 15 to 47 and come from Huddersfield, Leeds, Bradford, Wakefield and Selby.
All have been bailed by police investigating the serious disorder which broke out on Saturday, May 19.
Police believe the fracas was pre-planned and saw rival groups of fans thought to follow Huddersfield Town, Leeds United and Bradford City descend on Huddersfield.
The fans clashed near the Hart pub in Cloth Hall Street when barriers, bottles and signs were thrown.
The trouble then spread to Market Street, St George’s Square and the railway station.
Police said many of those involved got on to the railway lines between Huddersfield and Deighton, causing 61 trains to be disrupted.
British Transport Police said the mayhem caused by the yobs cost many thousands of pounds in damage and lost earnings because of the train delays.. Detectives have trawled through CCTV footage from several locations across Huddersfield.
