Daily Mail published this video item, entitled “Parliament holds minute’s silence after death of David Amess MP” – below is their description.

A packed chamber was hushed as Speaker Lindsay Hoyle condemned the ‘despicable’ attack on Tory veteran David Amess. The Commons chaplain, Tricia Hillas, said: ‘May the bright memory of his rich life ever outshine the tragic manner of his death.’ Parliament has cancelled almost all of its business today, with Boris Johnson set to open two hours of tributes. There will also be a service at Westminster afterwards so colleagues can pay their respects after the killing during a surgery in Sir David’s Southend constituency on Friday.
