POLITICIANS PAY TRIBUTE TO LATE MP
Tributes have poured in for the family, with Boris Johnson’s wife, Carrie, tweeting: “Absolutely devastating news about Sir David Amess. He was hugely kind and good. An enormous animal lover and a true gent. This is so completely unjust. Thoughts are with his wife and their children.”
Brendan Cox paid respects: “My thoughts and love are with David’s family. They are all that matter now. This brings everything back. The pain, the loss, but also how much love the public gave us following the loss of Jo. I hope we can do the same for David now.”
Lindsay Hoyle, speaker of the House of Commons, stated: “In the coming days we will need to discuss and examine MPs’ security and any measures to be taken, but for now, our thoughts and prayers are with David’s family, friends and colleagues.”
Sir David was described as a “family man.”
