Woman from #mytramexperience video allegedly arrested over alleged racist comments

The woman in the My Tram Experience video, which went viral earlier on Monday, has reportedly been arrested on suspicion of an alleged racially aggravated public order offence.

The video features a woman with a child on her knee, commenting about how Britain has “loads of black people” as well as lots of “fucking Polish”. A number of other passengers on the tram ask her in the video to watch her language because of the child.

The alleged incident took place on the Croydon to Wimbledon Tramlink route in London, although the exact location – i.e. the exact stops that were involved – are not clear. The video has now been watched more than 120,000 times on YouTube.

  1. This isn’t news. I’ve heard far worse than this almost every day in London.
