Youtube video titled "My Tram Experience" had been busy spreading the web by storm, racking up over 124,000 views and 12,000 dislikes since being uploaded Sunday.
It features a woman on a tram in Croydon verbally abusing other passengers "who ain't English" whilst holding her child. "Sort out your own country! Don't come and do mine." she screams at her fellow passengers . One of the two people featured in the video who speak-out against the lady appears to be White British.
Twitter users campaigned for a London-wide manhunt for this woman. Users urged newspaper The Metro to join in the hunt and numerous reports were made to the police.
British transport police arrested the 34 year old at her home in Croydon at 4PM this afternoon.
A spokesperson for BTP commented "We will not tolerate racism in any form on the rail network and will do everything in our power to locate the person responsible."
