Sabina Nessa was murdered during a five-minute walk through Cator Park in Kidbrooke, south-east London on September 17. The primary school teacher was on her way to meet a friend at a pub nearby.

Reacting to the news, Karren Brady, 52, said this was a “terrible reminder” that women are not safe.

“I am so sorry for Sabina’s family. This is truly tragic,” the businesswoman wrote in her column.

“I am also so sorry for the children who she taught. Imagine explaining to those children that their teacher has been murdered.”

Lord Sugar’s aide went on to say that something needed to change as soon as possible to keep women safe.

Greenwich Council has issued 200 alarms to women and vulnerable residents in the Kidbrooke area.

The devices are used to attract attention in cases of attack and help disorientate the attacker. They can be attached to keys, bags or be held in the hand.

A spokesperson said: “The team will continue to do this over the coming weeks, and further alarms will be purchased to ensure we can provide these to as many residents as we can.”

Karren added to The Sun: “The answer is not to issue women with personal attack alarms, as Greenwich Council has done to 200 local women.

“It is not about preventing women from walking around alone at night.

“It’s about stopping men who attack women who do walk around alone at night.”

Jeremy Clarkson’s daughter Emily has also called for the Government and councils to do more.

She shared a picture of a safety leaflet which had been handed out to women by a community group.

The 27-year-old wrote on Instagram: “A list of things WE ALREADY KNOW.

“Things we’ve known our whole lives because we have had to. But it’s not enough. Nor should it be our jobs to protect ourselves.”

She went on to say: “Stop telling women how not to be attacked and stop men from attacking us.

“Educate them better. Punish them better. And change the narrative. This isn’t violence against women.

“It’s male violence. And it is not a women’s issue. It’s a men’s issue.”

Yesterday, the Metropolitan Police said they had arrested a 36-year-old man on suspicion of murder in what Scotland Yard called a “significant development”.

Detective Chief Inspector Neil John, from the Met’s Specialist Crime Command, said: “Sabina’s family have been informed of this significant development and they continue to be supported by specialist officers.”

The suspect was detained at around 3am on Sunday morning and is being held in police custody.
