There has been a “deeply disturbing” upsurge in anti-Semitism in recent years, the communities secretary says.

Robert Jenrick told MPs incidents over the weekend in north London and Essex were “intimidatory, racist and extremely serious crimes”.

“Every time the virus of anti-Semitism re-enters our society it masks itself as social justice,” he added.

It comes amid rising tension between Israel and Palestinians in the Middle East.
