Two boys have been charged with racially-aggravated GBH after a senior rabbi was beaten up in Stamford Hill last month.

The pair, 14 and 15, will appear at Stratford Youth Court on January 7 after handing themselves in this week following a media appeal.

The victim, a 54-year-old dayan who sits as a judge in Judaic courts, was in Hackney for a family wedding when he was allegedly attacked while walking back to a relative's home in Amhurst Park just before 10pm on November 29.

He was left bleeding on the pavement.
