Terror police will probe murder of Tory MP Sir David Amess: Cops arrest ‘Somalian man, 25’ as witnesses reveal how horrified onlookers screamed for help as they tried to save him after he was ‘stabbed repeatedly at his church constituency surgery’
Counter terrorism officers are tonight leading the investigation into the murder Tory MP Sir David Amess, police have confirmed.
It comes after horrified onlookers screamed for help as they tried to save the Conservative MP after he was brutally stabbed to death in front of them at his Southend constituency surgery.
His attacker sprinted into the church and stabbed him to death during his weekly surgery as constituents watched in horror.
The Tory MP for Southend West, 69, was meeting locals at the Belfairs Methodist Church, in Eastwood Road North, Leigh-on-Sea, when it happened just at 12.05pm.
Paramedics worked to save the politician on the floor of the Essex church for more than an hour but he could not be saved after the appalling attack.
The murder bore chilling similarities to the killing of Labour MP Jo Cox, who was shot and stabbed multiple times outside her constituency surgery at a local library in Birstall, West Yorkshire, in June 2016 by a right-wing terrorist.
Tonight her sister, Kim Leadbeater, who has since been elected as a Labour MP to Jo’s former Batley and Spen seat, said she felt ‘frightened’ by the attack and that her partner has asked her to step down in the wake of Sir David’s death.
The popular politician – who won at the last general election with a margin of 14,000 votes – was knifed ‘multiple times’ by a 25-year-old killer. […]
Mr Harrington said ‘it will be for investigators to determine whether this is a terrorist incident’, adding they will be ‘keeping an open mind’ over the motive. According to the Telegraph, the 25-year-old arrested was believed to be a ‘Somalian origin’.
No name given, so… yeah.
