Nearly a year since a 20-year-old barmaid was raped and murdered after a night out in Northampton, her friend says he hopes lessons have been learnt from her death.

India Chipchase was drunk and alone outside NB's nightclub on Bridge Street, when she was lured into a taxi by middle-aged predator, Edward Tenniswood.

India wanted to become a paramedic and was working as a barmaid at The Collingtree Pub in Northampton.

On the night India was murdered, a doorman at NB's nightclub had put her in a taxi, but she got out.

Staff at NB's have had more advanced training in dealing with vulnerable people, but say there is only so much they can do.

Northampton Street Pastors are backing calls for more dedicated "safe places" to be set up in the town centre.

At the moment, they often take vulnerable people to McDonald's, to look after them there.

Even though the one man responsible for India's murder is behind bars - a year later - it is still making people think more about how to enjoy the Northampton nightlife and make sure they get home safely.
