And now Milly has claimed that she was “threatened” by officials.
She also posted pictures of the vigil on her social media showing the police surrounding the protest.
Actress Milly has added captions to the pictures: “Tonight in Clapham before and after. We protested peacefully out of solidarity for a woman [allegedly] murdered by a police officer.
“We were then physically pushed aside and threatened by … the police.”
However, she later assured a fan that she was fine. She said, “I’m fine!
“It was just very sad to see. They could have been there to keep people socially distant, but instead they made something completely different out of it. “
Sarah Everand protests: Orders from the Interior Minister report to the police
London Mayor Sadiq Khan criticized the police’s handling of the situation.
He tweeted, “The scenes from Clapham Common are unacceptable.
“The police have a responsibility to enforce COVID laws, but it is clear from pictures I’ve seen that at times the response has been neither appropriate nor proportionate.
“I am in contact with the Commissioner and am urgently looking for an explanation.”
However, Interior Minister Priti Patel has also ordered a report on the handover of the protest.
Deputy Commissioner Helen Ball defended the force, telling BBC News: “The police must act for people’s safety, that is the only responsible thing.

“We absolutely didn’t want to be in a position where enforcement action was required.
“But we were put in that position because we absolutely have to protect people’s safety.”
Earlier in the day, the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, left flowers for Sarah.
However, fans rushed to defend her on allegations. It was all just a publicity stunt.
