Police are hunting a woman caught on film hurling vile racist abuse at passengers on a London train.

British Transport Police (BTP) launched an investigation after being made aware of a YouTube video which shows the woman taunting a group of black passengers.
The woman, who appears to be in her 40s, is recorded saying: 'Go home, go home where you belong... You might have been born here, but I bet your grandparents and your great great grandparents weren’t.
'Yeah, go home. If yous belonged here you’d be pink-skinned, blonde-haired, blue eyes, green eyes.  For more click on read more

'Go home the lot of you. You make me sick. It’s why the country’s like it f****** is.'
And as she steps off the train at her destination, she continues her disgusting racist attack, saying: 'F****** monkeys, the lot of you. Go home.' 
NHS worker Oliver Miller, 24, said his sister Leah, 21, was one of the victims of the rant.
He said the woman got off the train at the same stop as Leah - who filmed the YouTube clip on her mobile phone - and continued to abuse her by saying she 'walked like a m*****'.
Oliver, who lives in Lewisham, south-east London with Leah, said: 'My sister was working at the time - looking after a lady with learning difficulties - so was in a pretty vulnerable position.
'She was fuming when she phoned me up afterwards. 'You won't believe what just happened to me!' she said.
'She sent me the video she had filmed. She said she was on the train when an argument broke out between this woman and some other passengers, who were black.
'My sister wasn't able to stand up for them because she was looking after the lady with learning difficulties, so she decided to film the incident instead.
'She got off the train at Abbey Wood - the same stop as the woman - and she said the woman continued abusing her on the platform.
'She said the woman kept saying: 'Look, you even walk like a monkey'.
'My sister was pretty upset and angry at what happened. London is our home. Our father is Jamaican, but he's lived here since he was 14, and we were both born here.
'What this woman was saying is extremely offensive. It's disgusting. What right does this woman have to abuse my sister like that?
'I want this woman to be named and shamed and brought to justice. That's why I put Leah's video on YouTube.' to view video click HERE
During the film, a man is heard warning the woman she is being recorded and other passengers can be heard asking the woman - who had dark hair in a pony tail - to leave.
The 40-second film clip called 'Racist lady on train in Woolwich - who is she' was posted on YouTube on October 30 and has been viewed by more than 1,100 people.
Police have released CCTV images of a woman they would like to speak to about the incident, which took place on yesterday on a train from Woolwich Arsenal to Abbey Wood in south-east London.
Detective Inspector Jeremy Walley, of the BTP, said: 'We have isolated CCTV images of a woman we believe may be able to help us with our investigation into the incident, which took place around 3.20pm.
'At this stage, we urge anyone who witnessed this incident, or who recognises the woman, to get in touch and help us build up a full picture of exactly what took place.
'We treat all allegations of racism very seriously and urge anyone with information about this incident to contact us.'
Anyone with information should contact BTP on 0800 40 50 40 quoting reference B4 LSA of 31/10/2012.
