Daily Mail published this video item, entitled “Sarah Everard: Women on Clapham Common say they do not feel safe going out alone” – below is their description.

Women in Clapham Common where Sarah Everard was picked up by Wayne Couzens during a ‘fake arrest’ say they do not feel any safer under the Met Police’s new measures. The strategy states victims who are being abducted by a police officer should attempt to wave down a bus, run into a house or shout out to a passer by. The guidance has been described as ‘insulting and derisory’ with critics saying it puts the onus on women rather than tackling violent men. Nursery teacher Funda Gunduzalp (centre) said: ‘I used to walk and run around the Common and Battersea park on my own. But I wouldn’t do that now.’
