A series of events have been held across the South to remember Jo Cox, who was murdered a year ago.

The idea behind the 'Great Get Together' is to celebrate the MP's community work by hosting neighbourhood parties where people can meet, mingle and socialise.

Events are being held across the weekend in Southampton, Maidenhead, Winchester, Oxford and other towns and cities in the South.

Hundreds attended one of the celebrations in Southsea, where a white rose bush was planted in Jo Cox's memory.
