EASTBOURNE MP Caroline Ansell has paid tribute to murdered Sir David Amess:

“Rest in Peace David Amess Thank you to everyone who has been in touch with me. I will be sure to convey your kind words and condolences with my own. I can’t imagine the agony of David’s family right now, his friends and his team.

I still feel shocked at his loss, a kinder man and more faithful public servant you will not meet.

I worked closely with him after the arson attack at Shinewater Primary.

He chaired the All Party Parliamentary Group on Fire Safety. All my thoughts and prayers are for those who loved him.”
