Video footage has emerged of a woman racially abusing two Asian women on a Manchester train on Wednesday morning.

Police are investigating the footage from a tram in Salford, Manchester in which an unidentified woman swears repeatedly and subjects two Asian women to a tirade of racist abuse.

She tells them: "I don’t want you teaching any of my kids. I don’t want no foreign nurse looking after me."

It is unclear from the footage what started the tirade, but when a man intervenes to try and calm things down, she says "I don’t give a f***."

Eventually the tram driver comes into shot and he asks if she has a ticket. When she says she doesn’t, the woman is asked to leave.
