Police on Sunday (22) released the picture of a girl who hurled racist abuse at an man on a bus on September 14.

Commuters were left horrified when the girl made racist remarks against a man on a bus in West London.

The girl started screaming at the passenger after her mother got into an argument with the bus driver.

The passenger reportedly became irritated by the girl’s behavior towards the bus driver, and asked her mother to restrain her. When her mother proceeded to dissuade her from shouting, the girl responds, “no let me hit.”

The girl then shouted at the man: “You smell of curry you dumb b**** go back to your f****** Southall slum!”

The Metropolitan Police have appealed for the public’s help in tracking the woman down.

A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police said: “Officers from the Met’s Roads and Transport Policing Command are appealing for witnesses after a man was racially abused on a bus.

They added: “Officers want witnesses to the incident, or anyone who can provide information about the people involved to come forward.
