Dagenham commuter accused of racist rant appears in court

A woman who allegedly hurled racist abuse on the London Underground appeared back in court today.

Claire Moloney, 40, of Western Avenue, Dagenham, formally entered a not guilty plea at Blackfriars Crown Court.

She was arrested following a witness appeal after footage that appears to show her ranting at another passenger on a District line train appeared on YouTube in April.

Moloney has chosen to have her case tried before a jury and has been released on unconditional bail.

A provisional trial date was set for September 23.
