Metropolitan Police must step up, says Sarah Everard vigil activist


Patsy Stevenson, 29, called for the Met to step up and intervene after the latest “appalling” news of boozy socials at Downing Street during Covid restrictions. Pictures of the physics student pinned to the ground while having her hands cuffed by officers at Clapham Common last March sparked outrage.

She said: “It doesn’t make sense. It just enforces the idea that the Government can get away with whatever they want.

“If they want to have any trust with the public, they need to investigate it and treat it the same they would treat a party with anyone else.”

Patsy, who was issued with a £200 fixed penalty notice, added: “If I apologise for going to the vigil, will I get my money back?”

She spoke out after Lib Dem leader Sir Ed Davey called for a criminal investigation into whether events breached Covid rules. 

And Green Party peer Baroness Jenny Jones says she has written to the force and the Independent Office for Police Conduct to ask if officers witnessed the May 20, 2020, garden party.

Meanwhile, pressure group the Good Law Project has issued legal proceedings against the Met for its failure to investigate a bash on December 18, 2020.

The force has said it will investigate if Sue Gray’s inquiry identifies any criminal behaviour.
