"This afternoon’s events are deeply disturbing, but I am glad to say that the Metropolitan Police are carrying out an investigation to identify those responsible for this vile behaviour as quickly as possible. They will also be carrying out additional patrols.

“Hate crime of any kind will not be tolerated. Thankfully we live in a borough where we are extremely proud of the diverse nature of our communities and the cohesive way in which those communities live together.”
