Woman arrested at vigil lights candle in Sarah Everard's memory

A woman who was arrested at a vigil for Sarah Everard in March has lit a candle in her memory at Clapham Common. Patsy Stevenson, who was given a fixed penalty notice for attending the gathering in the days after Ms Everard’s murder during the coronavirus lockdown, appeared emotional as she left a candle on the steps of the park’s bandstand in south London, which she had been unable to leave earlier this year following her arrest. Ms Stevenson stood in silent reflection for a few minutes, after other members of the public had left flowers and cards at the site.
