Police investigate as windows of north London kosher restaurant are smashed

Police have launched an investigation after windows of the north London kosher restaurant Orli were shattered. 

It was initially reported that gunshots had been fired but police have since confirmed a “projectile” was thrown at the glass at around 5.30pm yesterday evening. 

It was one of four incidents of windows being smashed across Edgware and Barnet yesterday evening. It is not known whether the attacks were provoked by anti-Semitic sentiments. 

It is thought the object thrown at the window may have been thrown from a moving vehicle. 

A Met spokesman said: “There have been four incidents across Edgware and Barnet of windows being smashed by a projectile of some sort, some people think it is a marble. There is no obvious motive.

“We are trying to establish if it was a vehicle or vehicles.”

London Live’s Alison Earle reported live from the Orli cafe in Edgware.
