A Jewish woman in Stamford Hill, London, was abused by a man on her doorstep who told her Jews should leave the UK.

Jewish News reports that the 75-year-old pensioner was confronted by the abuse after answering her doorbell on Friday, 26 March, according to Shomrim, the Jewish neighbourhood watch.

Officers say they are investigating the report of antisemitic abuse on Stamford Hill’s Darenth Road, but have not yet made any arrests.

“Officers have made contact with the victim and are in the process of progressing the investigation,” said a Met Police spokesman.
