Hundreds gathered in south London for a vigil for Sarah Everard, who was killed earlier this month after she disappeared while walking home. Political leaders have criticised the police’s handling of the gathering, and Home Secretary Priti Patel has demanded a full report from the Metropolitan Police.

The paper reports that “heavy handed tactics” were used as officers pulled women from the crowd, sparking condemnation from across the political spectrum.
image captionThe clashes at the vigil happened just a few hours after Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge visited the common on Saturday to pay her respects to Ms Everard. The Mail on Sunday joins several others to lead with images of the visit. Hundreds of flowers and tributes have been left at the bandstand on the 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”. The paper describes the visit as a “touching expression of unity”.
image captionThe Sunday Mirror also headlines on the duchess’ comments that she knows how it feels to be a woman out at night. Meanwhile, police officer, Wayne Couzens, appeared in court on Saturday accused of Ms Everard’s murder.
