Below is a statement from the Conservative Council Group on the death on Sir David Amess.
"We are heartbroken by the loss of Sir David Amess. He was one of Parliament’s longest serving MPs; a distinguished public servant committed and devoted to serving his community.
He was killed doing his job of helping his constituents. It’s tragic and unforgivable.
All of our thoughts and condolences are with Sir David’s family, friends and colleagues at this difficult time."
