London police to probe leaked Labour dossier on anti-Semitic incidents

Police in London say they will investigate a leaked Labour dossier containing dozens of allegations of anti-Semitism by party members.

Scotland Yard chief Cressida Dick vows to probe whether the cases mentioned in the internal document, which was obtained by LBC radio, could constitute hate crimes.

The dossier lists 45 claims of anti-Semitic behavior by party members, though it was unclear what action, if any, the party took in the cases.

“We will scope it, we will see whether a crime has taken place,” Dick tells LBC. “I, of course, will pass this to my experts to look at.”

A former hate crime investigator for the police who read the dossier tells the Telegraph he believes at least 21 of the incidents merit further investigation by police.
