The family, which included an infant, were subjected to vile racist death threats and had eggs thrown at their car in a sickening attack in the early hours of Friday morning.

Shomrim reported that the men shouted “F***ing Jews” and “Kill the Jews” at the family as they drove alongside in London’s Blackwall Tunnel.

Following the intervention of the Shomrim group, police officers from Tower Hamlets stopped a vehicle and made a number of arrests shortly after the incident. Three suspects have subsequently been given police cautions for their actions.
