A group of women are marching ten miles to New Scotland Yard to protest misogyny and racism within the Met.
The march marks the anniversary of the murders of Nicole Smallman and Bibaa Henry, with protesters carrying a clock to represent the time police failed to take action.
Organised by the Women’s Equality Party, it will culminate in a rally outside New Scotland Yard at 7pm.
Leader of the Women’s Equality Party, Mandu Reid, said: “We are carrying this clock for ten miles to remind everyone that in the sixteen hours after Nicole and Bibaa’s friends and family called the police, no one came to help.
“And that in the two years since they were murdered, nothing has changed. We are calling time on misogyny and racism in policing.”
The sisters were murdered in Fryent Park in June 2020, with the Met subsequently apologising for not progressing inquiries. Their bodies were found by Smallman’s boyfriend.
