A police investigation has been launched after a woman was filmed hurling racist abuse at passengers on a London Underground train.
In the shocking footage, the woman, who was dressed in a purple and white outfit, is heard calling one commuter a ‘f****** Algerian c***’ before threatening to ‘knock him out’ on a train near West Ham underground station just after 11pm on July 16.
The unidentified woman with a ‘death before dishonour’ tattoo continues to unleash the foul-mouthed racist tirade before confronting the man who is recording the encounter and calling him a ‘n*****’.
Just moments later, the woman appears to slap a fellow commuter as passengers on the train watch in horror.
British Transport Police have confirmed that they are now investigating the racially aggravated public order offence and enquiries are ongoing.
During the clip, which first emerged on social media, the woman calls a fellow commuter a “f****** Algerian c*** and proceeds to tell him: ‘I’ll spit in your face!’

Her friend appears to giggle at her racist rant before the woman squares up to the passenger and shouts: ‘Listen! Don’t ever raise your f***ing hands! You understand? If you see me, I’ll cut your head off!’
Just moments later, the woman confronts the cameraman and tells him ‘carry on recording me because I don’t care’.
The woman shouts: ‘Carry on recording me because I don’t care. I’ don’t give a f***. You’re some civilian motherf***** from Essex’
The cameraman then tells her: ‘At the end of the day it’s a public train. I don’t know why you’re getting lairy. It’s a public train.’
However the woman continues: ‘You’re an Essex boy! You’re a countryside boy! Do your homework! Even if your b*****s are countryside b*****s.’
The cameraman tells her to stop picking on train commuters and to act with ‘more self-respect’ before the woman responds: ‘Shut the f***k up you little countryside b****! All of you man hop off the train! Listen I’m sober my n*****!
‘Jump off the train and I’ll stab you in the face. Listen you don’t understand, I’ve been cheffed (sic) in the face by n*****s!’
