Ilford man filmed woman’s racist rant because people should not ‘put up with that behaviour’

An Ilford man who filmed a woman’s racist rant and posted the clip on video sharing website YouTube said he captured the tirade to show people not to “put up with that behaviour”.

Jacqueline Woodhouse, 42, was warned on Tuesday that she faces jail after launching into an expletive-laden outburst, telling horrified Tube passengers: “I used to live in England, now I live in the United Nations.”

Woodhouse, who works as a personal assistant and secretary, delivered the shameful tirade after a champagne binge.

The seven-minute clip was captured by Galbant Singh Juttla, of Ilford, who was making his way home from a funeral at the time.

Speaking outside Westminster Magistrates’ Court, the single father said: “I had just seen her shouting racist abuse at a black woman, and I though that she was out of order.

“I could not believe what I was hearing, no one should have to put up with that.

“I uploaded it to YouTube as I though it was a fast track process to catching that person.

“I needed to show them, the public, that that kind of person is out there, and not to put up with that behaviour.

“She needs a tough sentence.”

Woodhouse, of Mercury Gardens, Romford, will be sentenced on May 29.
