A 17-year-old boy has been charged after a man was subjected to anti-Semitic abuse on the Underground.

A Jewish man, identified as Yochai, was verbally abused in separate incidents on the evening of 4 July, first while on a bus into Oxford Street and then at Oxford Circus Tube station.

British Transport Police said the boy had been charged with a religiously aggravated public order offence.

The teenager will appear at Highbury Magistrates' Court on 2 August.

Police said at the time that the victim was subjected to a "torrent" of anti-Semitic abuse while walking down an escalator at Oxford Circus Tube station.
