A man who used anti-Semitic language towards members of the public in Tottenham has been jailed.

A 31-year-old Jewish man reported verbal abuse after a suspect in a van shouted anti-Semitic comments at him - including references to Adolf Hitler. A number of objects were also thrown at him. Three other people reported suffering similar abuse.

Patrick Joseph Delaney, from Braintree, Essex, was sentenced to six months’ imprisonment at Wood Green Crown Court after pleading guilty to a religiously aggravated public order offence.

The case against two co-defendants charged in relation to this incident was subsequently dismissed.
