Dr Lisa Cameron MP pays respects to Sir David Amess following his tragic death

Dr Lisa Cameron MP for East Kilbride, Strathaven and Lesmahagow said she would “miss Sir David very much”, adding that she appreciated the support and guidance he gave on animal welfare campaigns, “particularly our work together on Lucy’s Law”.

She added: “Sir David’s murder has shaken our democracy to the core and has a reeling impact on MPs, our families and staff.

“Although we feel anxious, we cannot allow abuse and terror to win. I will continue to represent my constituents day in day out just as Sir David did, as democracy must prevail.”
