Tram Race Rant Woman Bailed
Tuesday 13th December 2011
A woman accused of racially abusing passengers on a tram in Croydon has been released on bail.
Emma West from New Addington was charged with a racially aggravated public order offence after footage of the alleged incident went viral online.
Croydon Magistrates' Court today released the defendant on bail until 3rd January.
At a previous court appearance last week, Ms West was remanded in custody to protect her safety, but that decision was over-ruled at a private hearing.
The 34-year-old was arrested after footage, filmed on the Croydon to Wimbledon Tramlink service, was posted on YouTube, being viewed more than 11 million times.
