A van driver has been caught on camera saying "Hitler was a great man, he knew what he was doing" in a vile rant at a Jewish road-rage victim.
The incident was allegedly sparked by a row over parking on Friday in London's Stamford Hill area.
Stamford Hill is known as a Jewish area and is home to a large population of orthodox Hasidic Jews who often wear distinctive black clothes and hats.
The driver, who is black and speaks with a Caribbean accent, repeats the racist phrase several times when asked by the Jewish man.
In the brief clip, the Jewish man can be heard saying: "One more time, say it again."
The driver replies: "Hitler was a great man. He knew what he was doing."
He adds: "You think you own the world. You don't own the world.
"This is Stamford Hill, this ain't Israel, okay?"
Stamford Hill Shomrim, a Jewish neighbourhood watch group, said they have passed the footage of the incident to the police.
Rabbi Herschel Gluck OBE, president of the organisation, said in a statement: "The words used in this antisemitic rant is absolutely abhorrent and disgusting.
"I am deeply shocked that a person can hold and feel free to express such despicable views."
