Two major Jewish groups protested outside Parliament last night over the allegations of anti-Semitism in the Labour Party.

Things got very heated when one counter protester made his way over to the Jewish protest with a pro-Palestine poster.

Demonstrators confronted him and labelled him racist for connecting British Jews with Israeli policy. The video at the top of the page shows the huge row that followed.

Shortly afterwards, the man was sent away from the protest by police to huge chants of "Racist, Racist" from the demonstrators.
