On Wednesday, August 16 two men were seen placing the material outside Sandys Row Synagogue in Spitalfields and Bevis Marks Synagogue in the City of London, which is Britain’s oldest Jewish place of worship.

One suspect is described as a white man of medium build. He was wearing a light blue and grey hooded top and jeans and carrying a rucksack.

The other is also white and of medium build. He was wearing a black top and light coloured trousers and also carried a rucksack.

The Met have also stated that crimes of this nature are under reported and that victims of hate crime should know that police are committed to bringing perpetrators to justice.
