Woman appears in court over alleged racist abuse on London Underground
A passenger who was filmed allegedly hurling racist abuse on the London Underground was in court on yesterday.
Claire Moloney, 40, is charged with a racially aggravated public order offence after a YouTube clip emerged in April.
The film appeared to show her ranting at a passenger on a District Line train between Stepney Green and Mile End stations.
She was arrested after footage of the incident went viral and a witness appeal was made.
Moloney, of Western Avenue, Dagenham, elected to have her case tried before a jury earlier this month.
