An Islington man who wrote antisemitic graffiti on bus stops in Stamford Hill has received a community order. 

On December 18 last year, police caught Antonio Santos, of Cruikshank Street in Islington, in the act of defacing a Stamford Hill bus stop with a pen. 

Upon further investigation, the officers found more bus stops had also been damaged with the same graffiti.

The 61-year-old was sentenced at Thames Magistrates' Court on January 20 for three counts of racially aggravated criminal damage.

He was given a community order with requirements for rehabilitation and unpaid work of 80 hours over 12 months.
