A WHITEFIELD woman is facing sentence over a racist incident at Manchester Piccadilly rail station earlier this year.

Chelsea Lee Thompson, 27, has pleaded guilty to a racially-aggravated assault charge at the station, on February 28, when she appeared before Manchester magistrates.

Thompson, of Fountain Place, has also confessed to a second assault offence, on Stephen Fryer, and using threatening or abusive behaviour.

Manchester magistrates remanded her on bail for pre-sentence reports until September 25.
