As the festive season draws closer, a number of "high harm" offenders remain at large in London.

Suspects are wanted for a range of alleged offences including robbery, grievous bodily harm (GBH) and recall to prison.

The Met Police has released images of 12 wanted "violent offenders" in the hope that the public will recognise them.

Superintendent Thomas Naughton, of the violent crime task force, said police are increasing efforts to arrest these individuals in the lead up to Christmas.

“To those who are wanted our message is clear – we will not stop looking for you until you are arrested," he said.

"We will use technology and tactics to catch up to you - you won’t be able to evade justice forever.

"Do the right thing and hand yourself in to the nearest police station to prevent Christmas being ruined for your family and friends."
