Scotland Yard reveals huge rise in antisemitic crime in London

    Hate crimes against Jews in London have more than doubled, according to the latest figures from Scotland Yard.

    The statistics showed there were 299 hate crimes against Jewish people between the start of April and the end of December.

    That represented a rise of 128 per cent on the same period in 2013, when there were 131 hate crimes.

    The period in question included the months during the Gaza conflict last summer which led to a substantial increase in antisemitic incidents in Britain.

    Police said last week that they were increasing patrols in areas with large Jewish communities following the terror attacks in Paris. Scotland Yard said officers were continually liaising with the community.

    They said they were also reviewing overall security measures and looking at the safety of other minority communities including Muslims, as well as the force’s own officers.

    Assistant commissioner Mark Rowley said: “The global picture of terrorist activity does give us heightened concern about the risk to the Jewish community in the UK.

    “We are seeing continuing antisemitic rhetoric from extremists and attacks on this community in France and elsewhere.”

    The new data shows overall hate crime was up 22 per cent to 9,103 incidents between April and the end of December.
