Northampton South MP David Mackintosh said he was 'heartbroken to hear of the awful news' of the death of Jo Cox.

Vigils have been held and flowers laid to remember the Labour MP, who died after being shot and stabbed in the street in Birstall, West Yorkshire.

I am devastated by the murder of my colleague, Jo Cox. Whilst we were different political parties, we worked closely together on the same Select Committee and then set up an All Party Group on Homelessness which I chair and Jo was deputy for.

At The Queen's Speech last month, MPs traditionally walk from the House of Commons to the House of Lords with an opposition MP and I walked with Jo. She was excited as she had missed it the year before and we talked about ideas for our group on Homelessness. She was always full of ideas and energy.

I last saw her on Wednesday when we talked again about plans for the group and made plans to meet up again soon. I was heartbroken to hear the awful news and my thoughts are with her husband and children.

– David Mackintosh MP

Discussions continue over Northampton gasifier

Green campaigners say the site will release pollutants
