London – Three men have been arrested after Jewish shoppers in London were reportedly pelted with gas canisters by men in a pick-up truck shouting “Hitler is on the way”.

The antisemitic incident is alleged to have happened at Tottenham Hale retail park in north London at about 7.45pm on Wednesday.

The Jewish neighbourhood watch group Shomrim said it had been contacted by one of the victims who claimed a man in the truck also shouted “Heil Hitler”.

The Metropolitan police said a 24-year-old man had been arrested on suspicion of a religiously aggravated public order offence. The suspect presented himself to a north London police station and remained in custody. They later confirmed two other men, aged 22 and 18, had been arrested and accused of the same offence.

Police said they were still trying to trace the other occupants of the truck.
