The footage posted on website YouTube was apparently filmed on the Croydon to Wimbledon Tramlink route, and was viewed by thousands of people after appearing online on Sunday.

It shows a woman with a toddler sitting on her lap shouting at fellow passengers.

Emma West, of New Addington, appeared at Croydon Magistrates’ Court this morning charged with a racially aggravated public order offence.

A British Transport Police spokesman: “She has been remanded in custody for a week and psychiatric reports will be completed in due course. She is due to appear again on Tuesday, December 6.”
