Friends of murdered MP Jo Cox have paid a touching tribute to the politician this evening as they gathered at her London-moored houseboat to lay flowers and light candles in her honour.
Describing Ms Cox as a "beacon of hope who believed in love" fellow members of the boating community said today was "the saddest day of this closed community" as they had "lost a dear, dear friend, in the most tragic and outrageous circumstances".
Fundraising page set up by the MP's family hits the landmark total as thousands donate to good causes in her memory.
The MP had also recorded a video about Islamophobia in Yorkshire - described as a 'hotbed of far-right activity', according to The Times.
Emotional tributes have been paid to Jo Cox tonight as vigils were held around the UK in honour of the murdered MP.
