A man has been jailed for three months for shouting “1, 2, 3 Heil Hitler” and “go have a sausage sandwich” to a Jewish family in Stamford Hill.

David Aherne, 54, admitted one count of causing racially aggravated intentional harassment, alarm or distress and one count of causing religiously aggravated intentional harassment, alarm or distress when he appeared at Wood Green Crown Court on August 13.

The incident occurred on the 149 bus on July 10. Aherne, who is from Tottenham, shouted the remarks at a couple and their three children after he boarded.

One of the victims tried to stop Aherne from getting off after police were called but Aherne threatened to pull down his trousers in front of the family.

On Tuesday, he was sentenced to 12 weeks’ in jail. The judge cited the racism as an aggravating feature.
