'Vicky Pollard' train rant leads to death threats for Hawkhurst teen
A TEENAGER who was dubbed the real-life Vicky Pollard after her foul-mouthed rant on a train was filmed and posted online has been receiving death threats, her dad said.
The film, which has now been watched more than 40,000 times on YouTube, shows Louise Turner being thrown off a train at High Brooms station after a phone call to a friend called James, in which she loudly offers to make a sex tape and discusses her anatomy in graphic detail.
Fearful her explicit chat was offending other passengers, a guard ordered her off the train when it stopped at the station.
She responded by first insisting she was "not bothered" and told her phone friend: "They are trying to chuck me off the train."
She then warned the guard: "If you bring the police your head is going through the train window." But, unimpressed by her threats, he responded: "You are making hard work for yourself."
The three-minute video has attracted widespread criticism from viewers and Louise hit the headlines on Saturday when the national media likened her to the Little Britain character Vicky Pollard – a foul-mouthed poster girl for the "chav" generation.
The 15-year-old, who wants to be a hairdresser when she's older, has since faced a barrage of abuse, with constant calls to her mobile and home, according to her parents.
Father Brett Turner said: "My daughter is refusing to go to school now because of what happened and is getting death threats."
When the Courier visited the family's terraced home in Hawkhurst this week, her mother Rose Smith said: "There's nothing you can do or say now – the film is out there. People will soon get bored of talking about it."
But the abuse from viewers on YouTube has been too much for some family members, with one user calling herself Petra Turner and claiming to be the teenager's aunt, saying she was concerned for Louise's welfare.
Pleading for Louise to stay with her, she said: "It's time to change."
She added: "To everyone who has commented and wants to comment, this girl is my niece.
"She is just a confused little girl. She doesn't know what she's doing is wrong."
