"We were then physically pushed aside and threatened by….the police."

Milly’s post included a collage of four striking images.
One was of The Bandstand in Clapham Common where the vigil took place, one was of a hundreds of bunches of flowers and another was a young girl holding a cardboard sign in the air which read "Women’s rights are human rights".
