The backbencher was slain when horror erupted in an Essex church as he met his constituents yesterday.

Counter-terror cops continue to quiz a suspect, 25, on suspicion of murder.

TV presenter Piers posted the image of Sir David on Twitter this afternoon.

He captioned it: “Sir David Amess a few weeks ago with his wife Julia at their daughter Alexandra's wedding with their other girls as bridesmaids.

“Utterly heart-breaking.”

His followers paid tribute to the 69-year-old underneath the photo.

One said: “Such a beautiful family. Such a sad reminder that life can change in an instant. Utterly tragic.”

Another wrote: “I don’t know where one gets the level of courage needed to deal with something so horrific, so painful and so brutal in their family.

“I hope nevertheless that courage and comfort come to David’s family in abundance.

“In one second their entire lives changed – tragic.”

And a third said: “Such a kind looking-man with a beautiful family. What is happening to this world.”

Julia and the couple's children are grieving privately today.

Locals in Essex have laid dozens of bouquets outside the church in Leigh-on-Sea.


The tragedy comes as…

  • Boris Johnson leads tributes to Sir David – and said  ‘our hearts are filled with shock and sadness’
  • Counter-terror cops quiz a 25-year-old man arrested on suspicion of murder
  • The suspect, a British national of Somali origin, allegedly knifed the MP 17 times – and sat calmly while he waited for police to arrive
  • The PM visited the scene of the horror with Sir Keir Starmer and Priti Patel to lay a wreath of white flowers
  • Sir David was asked to stop meeting constituents alone after Jo Cox was murdered – and wrote that similar attacks “could happen to any of us”
  • Mrs Cox's sister says her terrified husband has asked her to step down from politics after the horror
  • Priti Patel launches review into MPs’ safety after killing
  • There were tears at a vigil as friends and constituents remembered the much-loved MP

One moving note, signed 'cousins', reads: “RIP David. Thinking of your lovely family.

“Can't believe this has actually happened.

“We will always love you.”

Also among the notes was one signed by a child.

An adult had penned the words: “Thank you for your service.”

The little one had signed the message 'Ryan family' beside a smiley face.

Others left hand-drawn cards and photographs, while the words 'we will miss you' had been written on a little blue helium balloon in marker.

'THANKS FOR EVERYTHING'

A sheet of lined paper torn from a notebook read: “Many thanks for everything you've done, not just for me but Southend as a whole.”

One couple wrote: “You helped us in the 1980s in Basildon.”

And a photo of Sir David beaming and holding aloft a rose had been captioned: “Champion of human rights and democracy.”

The politician was reportedly killed by a man who had quietly waited for an appointment.

The suspect is a British national of Somali origin.

Police are probing links the man is believed to have to Islamic extremism.

And officers have confirmed they're treating the killing as terrorism.
