A woman who was arrested in connection with footage showing a passenger making racist comments on a bus has been released on bail, with the condition that she does does not travel on any London bus.
The Metropolitan Police made the arrest in Hackney on Tuesday after assessing the video posted on video-sharing website, YouTube. The footage has been viewed by thousands of people.
In the two-minute, 35-second clip, shot by another passenger 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.
A Metropolitan Police spokesman said: "On Monday 20 August MPS officers began to assess footage of a woman that was brought to our attention. It shows a woman making comments on a bus.
"On Tuesday officers arrested a 34-year-old woman at an address in Hackney and she was taken to an east London police station.
"The woman - arrested on suspicion of racially aggravated public order - has now been bailed to return in September, pending further inquiries.
"She has been bailed to return with a condition not to travel on any London bus."
