Video footage has emerged of a young Jewish family suffering a barrage of anti-Semitic abuse while on a day-out.
A man’s voice can be heard telling the group, that included a child of three and a nine-week-old baby: “Don’t come round here, go to Stamford Hill, you’re not welcome.”
The family, who wish to remain anonymous, were planning to take the Emirates airline cable car near Excel in east London on Monday when they were subject to the tirade.

The children’s father, 32, said: “I heard shouting, quite aggressively, aimed towards myself and my family.
“This guy who was walking with two children and a lady in front of them started to shout ‘f**king Jews, go back to Isra-hell. Don’t come round here, go to Stamford Hill, you’re not welcome’. He continued again and again. He sounded very aggressive.
“My children all started crying, they were terrified. They were very scared and they didn’t sleep that night at all. I don’t think they will forget this very quickly. It was disgusting.”
The six children are aged 10, eight, seven, five, three and nine weeks.
Jewish community security group Shomrim, which is supporting the family, highlighted the case by posting the video footage to their Twitter feed on Wednesday.
A Scotland Yard spokesman said: “Detectives in Newham are investigating an allegation of anti-Semitic abuse which was reported to police on Monday August 22.
“The incident is said to have taken place on the same day at 5.15pm on Western Gateway, E16 near the Excel.
“A 32-year-old man states he was subjected to anti-Semitic abuse by another man.”
