Last updated : 16 May 2005 By Kevin Markey

One suspect was arrested at Pontefract Hospital where his partner was waiting to give birth.

During the January disturbance, officers were pelted with missiles and confronted by 'fans' armed with wood.

Det Supt Phil Sedgwick of West Yorkshire Police said those who thought police had forgotten the incident should think again.

"Those involved in the violence know who they are. After four months have passed they probably thought we had let it go.

"I'm here to tell them that we know who most of them are."

Police said they would later be releasing photographs of anyone not yet identified.

The raids were carried out in Gipton, Gledhow, Garforth, Seacroft, Woodlesford, Morley, Drighlington, Allerton in Bradford, Skipton, Doncaster, Batley, Cleckheaton, Gomersall, Catterick Garrison and Pontefract Hospital.
