A Britain First supporter who gave a Nazi salute, shouted ‘white power’ and drove at a curry house owner has been jailed for 33 weeks.

White van driver Marek Zakrocki, 48, beat up his wife before launching a drunken rampage on the anniversary of the Brexit vote.

He told a police officer he was going to ‘kill a Muslim’ before driving at Kamal Ahmed outside Spicy Night in Alexandra Parade, Harrow, north-west London.

He was heard to say: ‘I’m doing it for Britain. This is how I’m going to help the country. You people cannot do anything.’

The Old Bailey heard that the Polish-born window fitter used his white van as a weapon against Mr Ahmed.

He was driving at 5mph and was effectively trying to pin Mr Ahmed against the front of the restaurant window, which smashed.

Following his arrest by armed officers, police found a Nazi coin in Zakrocki’s pocket and a stash of Britain First flyers and newspapers at his home in Harrow.

Zakrocki, who was originally charged with attempted murder, pleaded guilty to dangerous driving and battering his wife.

He also admitted drink-driving as he appeared via video link from Wormwood Scrubs for sentencing at the Old Bailey.

Judge Anthony Leonard QC said: ‘You committed these offences at a time of heightened tension because of the attack on a Muslim outside a Mosque in London.’

The judge said there was evidence of ‘abhorrent’ racist views but his crime was due to the effect of alcohol.

He added: ‘In your drunken state what you said and the way you behaved would have been both offensive and put persons in fear.’

He sentenced him to 33 weeks in jail and disqualified him from driving for three years.

The defendant is likely to walk free from Wormwood Scrubs later having served his time on remand.
