UK - Far-right group leaflets at Jewish homes in Borehamwood

Borehamwood
- Police have pledged extra patrols in Borehamwood after a far-right group reportedly posted leaflets through the letterboxes of dozens of Jewish families.

Families living near to Yavneh College in Borehamwood’s Hillside Avenue last week received the leaflet that appeared to be sent by Patriotic Alternative, which is described by anti-fascist campaigners as an antisemitic organisation.

The material from the organisation called for a ban on kosher and halal food.

Police have pledged extra patrols in Borehamwood after a far-right group reportedly posted leaflets through the letterboxes of dozens of Jewish families.

Officers at Hertfordshire Constabulary told Jewish News no crimes had been committed.

“We are aware a number of residents in Borehamwood have received leaflets through their doors that have caused distress and offence,” said a force spokesperson.

“While no crimes have been committed, this has been recorded as a hate incident and we would like to reassure you that we take such matters very seriously. As a result, you will be seeing additional police patrols in the area.”
