Loose Women published this video item, entitled “Would a New Helpline Make Women Feel Safer At Night? | Loose Women” – below is their description.
Plans are being put together for a new emergency number aimed at protecting women walking home alone over widespread fears about safety following the murder of Sarah Everard. BT, which runs the existing 999 service, has submitted proposals for a mobile app that would allow people to have their journeys tracked, with an alert to make sure they have returned home. Priti Patel has backed the idea, but do the panel think it will be a good tool to make us all safer at night?

In This Story: Sarah Everard
Sarah Everard, a 33-year-old marketing executive, left a friend’s home in the Clapham neighborhood of London at 9 p.m. on March 3 2021. She never arrived at her Brixton home, some 50 minutes walk away. It was later discovered she had been kidnapped, raped and murdered by an off duty Metropolitan Police officer, Wayne Couzens, who, after his arrest in June, in July 2021 pleaded guilty to all three offences, and was imprisoned for life without parole.
