    Police have mounted an investigation after a swastika was daubed outside Jewish homes in north-east London.

    Shocked families discovered the antisemitic graffiti painted on the roadway on Geldeston Road in Stoke Newington yesterday.

    A picture of the hate-symbol was circulated on social media by the Stamford Hill Shomrim volunteer security patrol group, which said that local Jewish residents had been “shocked” by the discovery.

    This morning the group tweeted that the swastika graffiti had now “been removed by Hackney council”.

    A spokesperson for the Metropolitan Police confirmed that “the incident happened between 12:30hrs and 16:30hrs on Wednesday, 18 October” and that an investigation was under way. No arrests had been made so far.

    The spokesperson added that patrols in the area "will be conducted by the local policing team to provide reassurance” to residents.

    Rabbi Herschel Gluck, president of Stamford Hill Shomrim, said: "The frequency of antisemitic graffiti in Stamford Hill is appalling, and the lack of arrests with regards to these hate crimes is of deep concern."
