More video of apparently racist outbursts by passengers on London trains has emerged.
Two videos capturing offensive rants are drawing attention online, following the arrest this week of a woman suspected of a foul-mouthed rant on Croydon Tramlink.
Emma West was remanded in custody after appearing in court. It followed a video of her allegedly delivering a verbal blast to UK minorities going viral via YouTube.
Fears for her safety emerged because of the anger of web users sparked by the incident, which saw the video distributed widely.
The two new videos depict incidents on a train from London Bridge and on the Tube at Liverpool Street. They appear to have been posted as far back as 2009 and 2010.
A spokesman for British Transport Police said: “Anti-social behaviour like this is completely unacceptable and we would urge anyone who is the victim of such behaviour, or who witnesses it, to call police.
“It is important that incidents are reported either as they take place or, if that isn’t possible, as soon as possible afterwards as this allows us to respond and investigate quickly.”
West was charged with a racially-aggravated public order offence over the incident. She is due back in court on December 6.
