A commuter allegedly filmed hurling racist abuse on the London Underground was in court today.
Claire Moloney, 40, of Western Avenue, Dagenham, is charged with a racially aggravated public order offence.
A YouTube clip uploaded earlier in April appeared to show Moloney arguing with another passenger while on the District line between Stepney Green and Mile End stations.
She was arrested after footage of the incident went viral and a witness appeal was made.
Moloney elected to have her case tried before a jury earlier this month.
