West London Synagogue has spent 138,000 in the wake of bullying allegations levelled against its co-senior rabbi, David Mitchell.

Of the total sum, which was spent on appointing professional advisers, 113,000 came from very generous benefactors, who were not named in a report published ahead of its annual general meeting last week.

The synagogue will only be required to bear 25,000 of these costs, the report says.

West London Synagogue was contacted for comment.
