A vigil for marketing executive Sarah was planned by Reclaim the Streets in Clapham Common tonight (Saturday, 13th March) which has been cancelled by the Met Police who say it breaches lockdown restrictions - despite the group's attempts to work with police to make sure the vigil could go ahead safely.

Instead, people are being encouraged by organisers to shine a light on their doorstep at 9.30pm.

A fundraiser for women's charities in commemoration of Sarah Everard has been organised by Reclaim the Streets and has raised £200,000 since it was launched this morning.

Wayne Couzens, a serving Metropolitan Police officer has appeared in court today (March 13th) charged with the kidnap and murder of Sarah.
