(Newser) – Police in Britain have arrested a woman whose racist tirade on a London tram was viewed more than 2 million times on YouTube. In the video filmed by a fellow passenger, the woman—with a young boy on her lap—swears at black people and complains about immigrants from Poland, saying: "You ain’t English. Go back to your own countries. Don’t stay in mine. We English ain’t nothing now."

The video ends shortly after an angry passenger complains about the woman waking her baby, telling her: "I’m English, what have you got to say to me?” Police say that after the video was brought to their attention, the 34-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of having committed a racially aggravated public order offense, the Telegraph reports.
