British MP stabbed

A man has been arrested after reports that Conservative MP Sir David Amess was stabbed at a constituency surgery.

Essex Police said they were called to reports of a stabbing in Leigh-on-Sea on Friday and recovered a knife from the scene.

They said they were not looking for anyone else in connection to the incident.

Former party leader Sir Iain Duncan Smith said he was "praying for a full recovery".

He said on Twitter: "My thoughts are with David Amess MP and his family at this awful time.

"Praying for a full recovery following this appalling, shocking news. This angry, violent behaviour cannot be tolerated in politics or any other walk of life..." _Agencies
