Statement from Glenis Willmott MEP, Labour's Leader in the European Parliament, on the tragic death of Jo Cox MP:
"We are deeply shocked and saddened at this tragic news. Jo dedicated her life to public service, as an MP, a charity worker and an activist. She is fondly remembered by colleagues who worked with her in the European Parliament and she will be deeply missed. It is simply incomprehensible that something so horrific could happen to Jo while she was working hard to serve her constituents.
"Our thoughts are with her family at this horrendous time."
