Conditions

Sky News understands that a man entered his constituency surgery and stabbed him multiple times.

Amess, 69, is believed to have been receiving treatment at the scene for his injuries, and a local Conservative Party source told Sky News that an air ambulance is at the scene.

His condition is unclear, reports Sky News political correspondent Joe Pike.

“He was stabbed several times,” local councilor John Lamb told Reuters.

Arrested

“We’re not sure how bad it is, but it doesn’t look good.”

A Conservative MP has been stabbed multiple times in an incident in his constituency surgery and a man has been arrested.

A spokesman for his Westminster office said: “The incident has occurred. I don’t know what the incident is. We are still waiting.”

Sir David has been an MP for Southend West since 1997 and first entered Parliament in 1983.

“Officers were on the scene shortly after, arrested a man and recovered a knife. He is currently in custody.

“We are not looking for anyone else in connection with the incident and we do not believe there is an ongoing threat to the general public.

Statement

Essex Police said in a statement: “We were called in for reports of a stabbing in Eastwood Road North, #LeighonSea shortly after 12.05 pm tonight.

“We want to thank the public who alerted us to the incident so quickly.”

An employee of Jean’s Laundry, near the church, said she knew nothing about the incident but had seen emergency service vehicles pass by.

“We just saw all the police and ambulances showing up, it was probably 12:30 or a little earlier,” she told the Press Association.

“I saw about two or three ambulances and then an undercover police car and other police cars passing by.

“Usually there are people walking, elderly people walking to the shops. We still have no idea what is going on, we are not very busy on Fridays and no one has come to talk to us.”

Attack

Brendan Cox, widower of the late Labor MP Jo Cox, who was killed in a 2016 attack, said the stabbing was “as cowardly as it sounds.”

He tweeted: “Attacking our elected representatives is an attack on democracy itself. There is no excuse, there is no justification. It is as cowardly as it sounds.”

Parliamentarians and politicians from all parties have reacted with shock to the news.

Labor leader Sir Keir Starmer said: “Horrible and deeply shocking news. Thinking of David, his family and his staff.”

Twitter

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

Conservative MP Michael Fabricant wrote on Twitter: “David Amess is one of the most charming, carefree and supportive MPs in Parliament. This is just awful.”

Family

“My thoughts and prayers are with David and his family.”

Former Prime Minister David Cameron said: “Very alarming and disturbing news reports from Leigh-on-Sea. My thoughts and prayers are with Sir David Amess and his family.”
