Organisers CANCEL Sarah Everard 'Reclaim These Streets' vigil

Organiseerders KANSELER Sarah Everard 'Herwin hierdie strate’ vigil at Clapham Common set to be held today and urge people to stay at home after they lost High Court legal challenge against Met Police

A planned vigil for Sarah Everard has been cancelled after the organisers lamented a ‘lack of constructive engagementwith the Met Police to help make it Covid secure.

A Reclaim These Streets event was due to be held tonight at Clapham Common, near where the 33-year-old went missing on March 3.

Organisers yesterday went to the High Court for a ruling if they were allowed to host the event during inperking, which bans gatherings, but the judge did not intervene on their behalf.

This morning a statement from the group said: ‘We have been very disappointed that given the many opportunities to engage with the organisers constructively, the Metropolitan Police have been unable to commit to anything.

Organisers said they had made ‘every effortto pull off the vigil, including staggering start times, to ‘balance our right as women to freedom of expressionwith Covid curbs.
