Tesco, ASDA, and M&S all shared the message in the wake of pouring of support for action on women’s safety across the UK following the death of Sarah Everard in Kent.

The retailers said that “everyone has a right to feel safe”, offering up their stores as a place for people to go when needed – adding that staff “are there to help”.
