Woman Jailed For Racist Abuse On Tube Train

Woman Jailed For Racist Abuse On Tube Train

A woman whose racist abuse of fellow passengers on a packed Tube train became an internet hit has been jailed for 21 weeks.

Jacqueline Woodhouse, 42, from Romford in Essex was filmed ranting at passengers on a Central Line train in January.

The video, filmed by passenger Galbant Juttla, was uploaded onto YouTube and has now been viewed 200,000 times.

Mr Juttla was returning from a funeral when the incident happened.

Woodhouse is seen in the seven-minute video carrying out an expletive-laden rant at passengers.

She repeatedly asks them: "Where are you from? Where are you from?"

One passenger is heard to say: "I'm British."

She pleaded guilty at an earlier hearing to a charge of racially aggravated assault.

Woodhouse arrived at Westminster Magistrates Court with two friends, who shielded her from photographers with an umbrella.
