The Government are taking "immediate steps" aimed at improving safety for women and girls in England and Wales including plans for undercover police to be sent to clubs, bars and popular nightspots to relay intelligence about predatory or suspicious offenders to uniformed officers.
The BBC reported that the Government has announced an additional £25m for better lighting and CCTV as well as a pilot scheme which would see plain-clothes officers in pubs and clubs.
Following a meeting of the government's Crime and Justice Taskforce on Monday evening, Downing Street said it would take "immediate steps" to give "further reassurance" to women and girls in the wake of Ms Everard's death.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson - who chaired the meeting - said the government was bringing in "landmark legislation" to toughen up sentences and put more police on streets.
He said: "Ultimately, we must drive out violence against women and girls and make every part of the criminal justice system work to better protect and defend them."
