Sarah Everard vigil is cancelled following talks with Met police


A vigil for Sarah Everard scheduled to take place on Saturday night has been cancelled following discussions with police.

Writing on Twitter the organisers, Reclaim These Streets, said: “We are sorry to confirm that our Clapham vigil scheduled for tonight is cancelled. Please see the full statement here.

“Instead, we are fundraising £320,000 for women’s causes: £10K for every proposed fine for the 32 vigils originally scheduled.”

In the statement they said: “We have been very disappointed that given the many opportunities to engage with organisers constructively, the Metropolitan Police have been unwilling to commit to anything.

“It remains our view that with the appropriate mutually agreed measures in place, this evening’s vigil on Clapham Common would have been safe and in line with restrictions and safety regulations.”
