We solemnly mark 1 year since the tragic murder of Zara Aleena in Ilford. My team and I have stood by Zara’s family, working tirelessly to ensure they receive the justice they deserve and address VAWG in Ilford.

Zara’s legacy continues to inspire us all. Today her family, friends and the Ilford community will hold a silent vigil, honoring her memory and reinforcing our commitment to a safer future.
