First Minister Paul Givan and deputy First Minister Michelle O’Neill have expressed their shock and sympathy following news of the death of David Amess MP.
First Minister Paul Givan said:
“I was shocked to hear the news about Sir David Amess. This was a brutal attack on a man with a distinguished history of public service, and the repercussions will resonate with us all.
“But, more than this, Sir David was a husband, father and colleague – and it is those closest to him who will feel this loss most profoundly. My immediate thoughts are with Sir David’s family and friends at this very sad time.”
Deputy First Minister Michelle O’Neill said:
“I was deeply shocked to learn of the death of David Amess in the most tragic of circumstances. No public representative should face attack when carrying out their duties on behalf of their constituents.
“My thoughts and prayers, first and foremost, are with David’s family and friends at this awful time.”
