The police were informed about the video “My Tram Experience” that went viral on YouTube over the weekend. The video shows a woman, with a small child in her lap, going on a racist rant against fellow passengers.
In the clip (which you can view here), the woman from New Addington in south London, is seen hollering at other passengers saying they are not British and should “go back to where you come from.”
The shocking video sparked outrage on social media sites.
“The woman has been arrested for racially aggravated offense as a result of #mytramexperience video brought to our attn,” British Transport Police said on its Twitter account.
The video footage shows the woman yelling things like, “What has this country come to…with loads of black people and a load of f–king Polish.”
“Sort out your own countries, don’t come and do mine, Britain is nothing now, Britain is f–k all, my Britain is f–k all now.”
When a passenger shouted that there were kids on the tram, she snapped back with, “Yeah fine, I’ve got my little kid here.”
A British Transport Police spokesperson said they would “not tolerate racism in any form on the rail network.”
Let’s be glad that this nightmare had a happy ending.
