The latest charity figures reveal the number of anti-Semitic incidents in the UK rose by 11 percent in the first six months of this year with London reporting three-quarters of all recorded attacks.

The Community Security Trust (CST) said 577 incidents targeting Jews were reported to the charity from January to June. This was up from 473 in the same period last year, a trend the charity’s chief executive, David Delew, said was “worrying”.

Home Secretary Amber Rudd responded by condemning the “deplorable rise” of incidents, which included 41 violent assaults.
