A woman who was arrested by police investigating claims of a black woman making racist comments about white people on a bus has been released on bail, with the condition that she does does not travel on any London bus.
The 34-year-old was arrested at an address in Hackney yesterday on suspicion of a racially aggravated public order offence and taken to an east London police station for questioning.
The Metropolitan Police made the arrest after assessing video footage of a woman making comments on a London bus.
Thousands of people have watched the footage, which was recorded by a fellow passenger, after it was posted to video-sharing website YouTube.
In the two-minute, 35-second clip, shot on a camera phone, the distressed-looking woman is heard proudly proclaiming her African heritage in the crowded bus before launching into a foul-mouthed rant disparaging white people.
She is also heard to criticise the Queen for wearing a crown with an African diamond in it. Full story...
