U.K. Lawmaker Killed in Stabbing Attack

David Amess, a Conservative member of Parliament, was fatally stabbed inside a church where he was meeting with constituents in the town of Leigh-on-Sea, about 40 miles east of London.

“Just after midday today, Essex Police were called to reports of a stabbing in Eastwood Road North, Leigh-on-Sea. The response of the emergency services to this incident was immediate, and our officers arrived on scene within minutes. When they arrived, they found Sir David Amess, M.P., who had suffered multiple injuries. This was a difficult incident, but our officers and paramedics from the East of England Ambulance Service worked extremely hard to save Sir David. Tragically, he died at the scene.” “I worked with him for many years and have so many great memories of working with him, and he was such a kind man. And the one thing that really struck home for me was how much of a constituency M.P. he was. He loved Southend. He loved Basildon when he represented Basildon, and he did so much for his constituents, went above and beyond.” “It will kind of shatter the community, really. Yeah, it’s very sad.” “In terms of David as an M.P., he was — he was fantastic. Regardless of your political allegiance, David would always try and help you if he could. He was always very approachable and tremendously hard working.”
