A few words after the tragic loss of Sir David Amess MP
David was a good friend for 25 years, his death is a terrible shock. Losing him in such a violent way makes it even harder to come to terms with. He was always kind, always interested in other people. David’s wife and family are in my thoughts and prayers, Southend has lost a fine Member of Parliament and we have all lost a warm, decent, big-hearted man.
