Vigils in Scotland were called off due to Covid restrictions, but ribbons were tied up in locations around Glasgow by those who wanted to support the Reclaim These Streets movement.

Hundreds of flowers and tributes have been left at the bandstand on Clapham Common, which is not far from where Ms Everard was last seen alive. Citing an aide to the duchess, the paper says Catherine remembered “what it was like to walk around London at night before she was married”.
