Brendan Cox, the husband of murdered Labour MP Jo Cox, has said that she would have wanted people to "unite" to "fight against the hatred that killed her".

In a statement released following her death he said:

Mr Cox's emotional comments came after police confirmed that Ms Cox had died "as a result of her injuries" after she was attacked by a man in the street near where she held her regular advice surgeries in Birstall, West Yorkshire.
