Footage of a young woman shouting racist abuse while holding a child went viral on Monday and provoked a massive debate on Twitter. The woman, who was on a London train from#Croydon to Wimbledon, unleashed a foul-mouthed tirade against ethnic minorities in the UK, directing her anger at black people and eastern Europeans who surrounded her on the tram. A number of social networks in London immediately set about trying to identify the woman. The video was also brought to the attention of the British Transport Police, who launched an investigation and reported later on Monday that an arrest had since been made. The debate sent the hashtag #mytramexperience trending on Twitter.
