A thug who called a Muslim mum and daughter "ISIS scum" before smacking one in the face with a packet of bacon has been jailed.

Alex Chivers, 36, was thrown behind bars for six-and-a-half months for the shocking Islamophobic assault.

He called the teenage victim and her mum "ISIL scum" and shouted "you deserve this", before striking the girl in the face with an open packet of bacon.

The girl was "very distressed" by her ordeal on a street in Enfield, north London.

The attack was filmed by Chivers' friend and the footage was posted online.

He pleaded guilty and was jailed for 26 weeks for assault and 12 weeks for the public order offence to run concurrently, ordered to pay a £115 victim surcharge and will complete a 12-month supervision order upon release.

DC James Payne, from the Metropolitan Police, said: "This was a truly shocking incident.

"The victim was out with her mother and getting on with her day when Chivers abused her and then set upon her with something he knew would both upset and offend her.

"We know other people were present during this attack, including an associate of Chivers' who filmed the incident.

"Enquiries are ongoing to trace these people and if you have any information that may assist in identifying them please contact the community safety unit at Enfield via 101.

"The community safety unit here in Enfield would encourage all victims of hate crime to contact police so that the culprits can be identified and brought to justice."
