Conservative MP Sir David Amess has been stabbed as he met constituents at a regular surgery.

Essex Police said they were called to reports of a stabbing in Leigh-on-Sea at 12:05 BST and arrested a man.

Police recovered a knife and said they were not looking for anyone else in connection to the incident.

Former party leader Sir Iain Duncan Smith said he was "praying for a full recovery".

He said on Twitter: "My thoughts are with David Amess MP and his family at this awful time.

"Praying for a full recovery following this appalling, shocking news. This angry, violent behaviour cannot be tolerated in politics or any other walk of life."

The 69-year-old, who is MP for Southend West, was stabbed as he met constituents at Belfairs Methodist Church.

An air ambulance was sent to the scene.

Southend councillor John Lamb, who was at the scene after the stabbing, said Sir David was a family man, with four daughters and a son.
"He's always trying to help people, and especially refugees he's tried to help. He's a very amicable person and he does stick by his guns, he says what he believes and he sticks by it," Mr Lamb said.
He told the BBC the MP had not been taken to hospital but was operated on by medics at the scene.
Mr Lamb said he was still waiting to hear the extent of Sir David's injuries, but understood the MP was in a "very serious" condition.
The Jo Cox Foundation, the charity set up in memory of the MP who was murdered in 2016, said it was "horrified" by the stabbing.
"We are thinking of him, his family and loved ones at this distressing time," the foundation said.
Labour Party leader Sir Keir Starmer said he was thinking of Sir David, his family and his staff after the "horrific and deeply shocking news".

Absolutely shocking man I can't understand why they're attacking members of parliament crazy walaahi. He might've been one of the conservatives but no one deserves to die like that being stabbed in broad daylight, he wasn't even a tory hardliner.

2nd MP, after Jo Cox to be killed in the past couple of years or so. In a constituency surgery as well. If the person ain't black, then it will finally awaken the people on how far right extremists are more of a threat than the few doqons who do in in the "name of Islam".

Conservatives ain't bad, policy wise, but stuff like this shows how deepen the situation is, in terms of inequality and with UC cuts going on, how people are getting more and more far to the right...

Since he was a conservative politician it seems rather unlikely he would've been killed by a far-right individual, some are saying that it's likely a person with liberal leaning views. The MP was known for being against abortion and same-sex rights probably because of his Catholic background.
