News Hour | Sarah Everard vigil: Do women feel listened to? | Protests: How should they be policed?

Monday, 15 March

Women must feel their complaints about violence are "properly heard", the PM has said, after concern about how a vigil for Sarah Everard was policed. Boris Johnson said footage of officers forcibly removing a number of women from the event was "distressing". He added it was "fundamental" that women felt listened to and he was "going to make sure that happens". Priti Patel and Boris Johnson say they're listening to women - do you feel listened to? Policing of the Sarah Everard vigil has increased interest in plans to give officers more precise powers to restrict demonstrations.The Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill is a mammoth piece of legislation that includes major government proposals on crime and justice. It's being debated by MPs this week. One part of it covers changes to protests. How should protests be policed and what is the future of this?
