A woman who allegedly hurled racist abuse on the London Underground is due in court next month.

Claire Moloney, of Western Avenue in Dagenham, was charged with a racially aggravated public order offence on Sunday.

The charge follows a witness appeal after footage of an apparent racist rant on a district line train between Stepney Green and Mile End station appeared on YouTube last month.

The 40-year-old was bailed and is due to appear at Westminster Magistrates Court in June.
