Conservative MP Sir David Amess has died after being stabbed on Friday in his constituency of Southend West.

According to Reuters, Amess was stabbed by a man who walked into a church with voters during a constituency meeting. Amess regularly held meetings in the church on the first and third Fridays of each month.

"[Amess] was treated by emergency services but, sadly, died at the scene," said police.

"A 25-year-old man was quickly arrested after officers arrived at the scene on suspicion of murder and a knife was recovered."

Amess, who represented Southend West, died at 69. He is survived by his wife and five children.
