A man has been found guilty of hurling antisemitic abuse at the Orthodox driver of a Stamford Hill school bus.

Rashal Miah, 36, shouted that he would "kill all the Jews" during the road rage incident in 2014, Snaresbrook Crown Court heard.

After getting stuck in traffic, Miah, of Gladesmore Road, Tottenham, got out of his car and argued with the bus driver, before calling him a "Yehudi”.

Judge Murray Shanks ordered Miah to carry out 15 days of anger management sessions and 100 hours of community service, the Hackney Gazette reported.

He was also given a suspended sentence for 26 weeks for using threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour with intent to cause fear or provoke violence.

Uber said that they had banned Miah from working with the company. In a statement, they said: “Uber does not tolerate discrimination or harassment of any kind and we were appalled to hear about this incident. Following our own investigations and today’s conviction, we have taken the decision to stop this licensed private hire driver from using the Uber app.”
