Global News published this video item, entitled “David Amess killing: Residents in shock, disbelief after British MP’s murder” – below is their description.

Residents of Leigh-on-Sea in the United Kingdom spoke about their disbelief and shock on Saturday following the murder of British lawmaker David Amess.

Amess, 69, from British Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s Conservative Party, was knifed repeatedly in the attack at about midday on Friday during a meeting with constituents.

Johnson and Labour Party Leader Keir Starmer stood side by side in a moment of silence at the site of church where Amess was stabbed.

On Friday, Johnson said Britain had lost a fine public servant and a much-loved friend and colleague.

Police arrested a 25-year-old British man at the scene on suspicion of murder, adding it is believed he acted alone.

In a statement early on Saturday, police said the early investigation had revealed a potential motivation linked to “Islamist extremism.”
