On October 15, Amess was stabbed multiple times at his constituency surgery at Belfairs Methodist church in Leigh-on-Sea. Despite reportedly being operated on inside the building, he passed away at the scene.


His accused attacker – 25-year-old Ali Harbi Ali – was arrested following the incident and has since been remanded into custody after he pleaded not guilty to the 69-year-old’s murder.
