But the 47-year-old mum of four was told she won't face trial until March 2022.

Ward, of Warford Hall in Great Warford, Cheshire, is accused of racially aggravated intentional harassment towards two people, Jake Jacobs and Sam Jacobs, at the London train station.

She was also charged with possession of a class A drug, namely cocaine.

Each charge carries the potential of six months behind bars or an unlimited fine.

She first appeared at Highbury Corner Magistrates' Court on September 10 this year but was later called again on September 28 for a plea hearing.

She denies all the charges.

The charges read: "On 29/10/2019 at Euston Railway Station, Eversholt Street, Camden, London with intent to cause Jake Jacobs harassment, alarm or distress used threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour or disorderly behaviour thereby causing that or another person harassment, alarm or distress and the offence was racially aggravated."

She faces an identical charge which names Sam Jacobs.

The charges continue: "On 29/10/2019 at Euston Railway Station Eversholt Street, Camden, London had in your possession a quantity of cocaine a controlled drug of class A in contravention of the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971."

Her case was called before Inner London Crown Court today for a pre-trial hearing and a court official said she is now set to face trial in March 2022.
