A vigil is going to be held in Nottingham tomorrow evening to remember Labour MP Jo Cox, who was fatally shot and stabbed in her own constituency yesterday.

The vigil will be held at the Forest Recreation Ground at 7pm on Saturday (18 June).

Vigil organisers said:

Jo believed in a better world and she fought for it every day of her life with an energy, and a zest for life that would exhaust most people.

A candlelit vigil to remember Jo's life and fight against the growing darkness of hate.

If you can't make it please light a candle for Jo in your own house and take a moment to think about love.

– Vigil organisers
