BREAKING: Lawmaker stabbed to death

Police said a 25-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of murder, following the attack on UK MP, Sir David Amess who died shortly after being stabbed at his constituency surgery in Essex.

The Police said they recovered a knife and were not looking for anyone else in connection with the incident.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson said “our hearts are full of shock and sadness” at the loss of “one of the kindest” people in politics.

Sir David, 69, had been an MP since 1983 and was married with five children.

Mr Johnson said Sir David had an “outstanding record of passing laws to help the most vulnerable”.

“David was a man who believed passionately in this country and in its future. We’ve lost today a fine public servant and a much-loved friend and colleague,” he said.

Speaking, Health Secretary Sajid Javid said he was “a great man, a great friend, and a great MP, killed while fulfilling his democratic role”.

Home Secretary Priti Patel said the killing “represents a senseless attack on democracy itself”, adding that “questions are rightly being asked about the safety of our country’s elected representatives”.
