A Jewish MP has spoken out about her own personal experience of anti-Semitism, as figures show record levels of hate crime against Jews in 2014.
Luciana Berger, who represents the Liverpool Wavetree constituency, received thousands of anti-Semitic messages during a three-day campaign of abuse on social networking site Twitter.
She told ITV News the messages continue to this day - and said it was "incredibly difficult" to cope with the barrage of abuse.
She said the messages have come from neo-Nazi sympathisers from around the world.
Among those behind the messages was 21-year-old Garron Helm, from Litherland, near Liverpool, who was sentenced to four weeks in prison for his message to the MP.
He sent her a picture of herself, with a Holocaust-style yellow star edited onto her forehead, accompanied by the words: "Hitler was right".
