Dagenham woman denies racist tube rant

A woman who allegedly hurled racist abuse on the London Underground has denied the claims.

Claire Moloney, 40, of Western Avenue in Dagenham, is charged with a racially aggravated public order offence.

It follows a witness appeal after footage of an apparent racist rant on a District line train between Stepney Green and Mile End station appeared on YouTube in April.

She appeared at Westminster Magistrates Court yesterday and was released on bail to appear at Blackfriars Crown Court on June 19.
