Police believe the man is in his late 30s and was caught throwing ‘rotten pork’ into a Mosque in Finsbury Park.

Police were called to the Mosque at 4.15am on May 26 after witnesses spotted the man acting suspicious and walking around the building several times with a package in his hand.

He waited until no one was there and threw the pork over the fence.

He has been described as a white male, 5ft 9ins tall and medium build, wearing a light coloured hat, light coloured coat and dark black shoes.

Detective Inspector Ralph Coates of Islington Community Safety Unit said: ‘We take hate crime extremely seriously as we know how destructive these offences can be, both to individuals and to communities.

‘I would urge anyone who recognises this man or has any information that will help the investigation to contact police.’
