Daily Mail published this video item, entitled “Southend residents react with ‘shock’ to killing of David Amess MP” – below is their description.

Since the year 2000, Sir David Amess (pictured left) had relentlessly pushed for Southend (pictured right) to be upgraded to city status – most recently arguing that it would help attract some much-needed investment post-Brexit and Covid. Now following his tragic death, colleagues from both sides of the aisle are demanding his wish be granted, arguing it would be a ‘fitting memorial’ for the 69 year old.
