Conservative lawmaker David Amess died after being stabbed during a meeting with electors in eastern England. He was a fervent Catholic and a supporter of the Withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union (Brexit).
A 25-year-old man was arrested at the same crime scene in Leighton-on-Sea. He is held at a police station in Essex.
"It is believed he acted alone. We are not looking for anyone else in connection with the incident at this time. However, inquiries are continuing into the circumstances," Police officers said.
We’re devastated to hear of the death of Sir David Amess, a huge dog lover who always supported our work. Our thoughts are with his family, friends, colleagues and the community he served. Thank you, Sir David, for caring & making a difference to the lives of dogs here in the UK. pic.twitter.com/MHZumAFcTb
