Racist tram rant accused Emma West remanded after court hearing
A woman accused of racially abusing fellow passengers on a busy tram watched a film of her alleged rant when she appeared in the dock.
Emma West, 34, appeared at Croydon Magistrates’ Court charged with a racially aggravated public order offence.
She cried as the three magistrates watched the footage, which has now been seen more than 11 million times online.
Ms West was remanded in custody until 3 January.
The defendant, of New Addington, was arrested after the footage, filmed on a Croydon to Wimbledon tram, was posted on YouTube.
A bail application was made by Ms West’s solicitor David Ewings, but it was denied by the magistrate Ian McNeal to protect her safety.
She was remanded in custody to appear by videolink for a committal hearing at Croydon Magistrates’ Court.
Earlier, an administrative error led to the defendant entering a not guilty plea, but the court file was later amended to show she has not yet pleaded
