It has been reported that a bus drove through Stamford Hill while onboard speakers blared “go home Yiddos”.
The incident reportedly took place on Saturday afternoon, the day of the Jewish Sabbath, whilst Jewish people were leaving the synagogues.
It was reported by Stamford Hill Shomrim, the Jewish volunteer neighbourhood watch patrol.
In response to the news, the bus company, Ensignbus, tweeted that it hired out the bus to who they believed was a church group, adding: “We had absolutely no idea that this would happen or was planned and we are now investigating the matter and will be speaking to the client. We are happy to assist the Police with any investigation.”
Ensignbus later tweeted: “Our driver unfortunately did not hear anything due to the general amount of noise from the number of people upstairs.
“If anyone has audio (or video with audio) of what was said, we would like to hear it to help with our own investigation”
If you have any more information, please contact the police on 101 or Stamford Hill Shomrim on 0300 999 0123, quoting reference number: 4602717/22
