A woman accused of racially abusing passengers on a tram in London has been released on bail.
Emma West, 34, of New Addington, was charged with a racially aggravated public order offence after footage of the alleged incident was put online.
On Tuesday, Croydon Magistrates' Court released the defendant on bail until 3 January. She has not entered a plea.
At a previous court appearance last week, Ms West was remanded in custody to protect her safety.
Ms West was arrested after footage, filmed on a Croydon-to-Wimbledon tram, was posted on YouTube. It has been viewed more than 11 million times.
