Sir David Amess’ family read tributes outside church where he was killed

The family of Conservative MP Sir David Amess, including his widow Julia, read messages on floral tributes left outside Belfairs Methodist Church in Leigh-on-Sea, Essex, where he was stabbed to death on Friday.

“As a family, we are trying to understand why this awful thing has occurred,” they said in a statement. “Nobody should die in that way. Nobody.”
