It has been reported that a Jewish primary school in Stamford Hill had to lock down and prevent its students from leaving in order to protect them from an apparent aggressor waiting outside.
A suspect captured on video appeared to be shouting a torrent of abuse towards the school that included yelling “You’re evil…the wasteland is where you’re from.”
The incident was reported on Monday by Stamford Hill Shomrim, the Jewish volunteer neighbourhood watch patrol.

Campaign Against Antisemitism’s analysis of Home Office statistics shows that an average of over three hate crimes are directed at Jews every single day in England and Wales, with Jews more than four times likelier to be targets of hate crimes than any other faith group.
