As ugly and distressing scenes unfolded in the capital on Saturday night in the wake of a vigil for Sarah Everard, Nottingham’s tribute to the 33-year-old was held peacefully and without incident.

Despite Covid rules, at least 100 people gathered around the Brian Clough statue just off Old Market Square as candles and flowers were left to pay tribute to Sarah.

The city centre fell silent to pay its respects as the Council House bell chimed at 6pm.

Sarah, a marketing executive, disappeared as she walked home in south London last week.

Met Police officer Wayne Couzens, 48, has appeared at Westminster Magistrates’ Court charged with Ms Everard’s alleged kidnap and murder.

And now the head of the Metropolitan Police is under intense pressure to explain her officers’ actions during the London vigil.

Commissioner Dame Cressida Dick is facing calls to resign after clashes between police and crowds who gathered on Clapham Common on Saturday night to remember Sarah.

Officers from the Metropolitan Police were seen grabbing several women and leading them away in handcuffs.
