MP Sir David Amess has been stabbed in major incident at his constituency surgery in Leigh. The Tory MP for Southend West was holding a surgery at the Belfairs Methodist Church. A man reportedly ran into the church in the last hour, before the MP was stabbed "several times". pic.twitter.com/NXGhy3Twmd— Colin Brazier (@colinbrazierGBN) October 15, 2021
Angela Rayner should resign. It's much easier to stab someone who has been dehumanised. Best wishes to David Amess. Hope he's OK— Effie Deans (@Effiedeans) October 15, 2021

Very shocking to hear of another attack on an MP holding a constituency surgery. Access to our representatives is essential for our democracy and and an attack on one is an attack on that system. Prayers for David Amess and all affected will be offered this evening.— Richard Coles (@RevRichardColes) October 15, 2021
