Police escort for Garth Lane Bridge’s journey to Grimsby

Another monument to Sarah Everard was erected in Lincoln, as were chalk markings on the city walls.

Sarah Everard, 33, was found dead in the Kent woods on March 13, ten days after she disappeared in Clapham, London while walking home alone at night.

An investigation into her death has not yet clarified the cause, although acting metropolitan police officer Wayne Couzens has been charged with murder and is on trial this fall.

Lincoln honored Everard with a memorial on the University Library Bridge and the University of Lincoln, which held a vigil for them on Tuesday.

When the memorial was erected, students saw strong messages and statistics of harassment against women on the public benches near the LPAC and the machine house.

Since then, more people have paid tribute to the bridge monument.

Now a second memorial, almost identical to the first, has appeared on the old West Parade police station.

Flowers and a picture of Sarah and the stories of other victims can be found on the vintage police sign.

The protesters also used chalk on the walls of the old building to spread the word and speak out against gender-based violence.

It wasn’t just the police station that was adorned with these protest messages as numerous streets in Lincoln were targeted.

On Hungate, right in front of Home nightclub, there are some markings calling for an end to violence against women.

There were also signs of protest near the high street, which in turn supported the same messages as other chalk markings across town.

The footbridge at Brayford Wharf East was filled with messages of protest and solidarity.

The honors were regularly attended by women in the city, and more and more flowers are being planted on them.

It comes after Lincolnshire County Council confirmed it will not reverse its decision to leave the streetlights on after midnight to save money.

The council said women’s safety “is much more than street lights” and that lighting “has had no impact on nighttime crime” in Lincolnshire.
