More than a thousand people gathered in London on Saturday for a vigil to mark the killing of Sarah Everard and protest violence against women.

Footage emerged showing police clashing with mourners on Clapham Common, with witnesses reporting that several women were dragged away. Four people were arrested for public order offences and breaches of the Health Protection Regulations.

The incident has focused attention on a new law that aims to clamp down on the right to protest, which has been described as "poorly thought-out".

Nick Ferrari, presenter of Nick Ferrari at Breakfast on LBC, joined us to discuss this.
