    Edit - an unconfirmed report from the Telegraph suggests the bloke who shot her was an idiot from "Britain First".

    Has recently been confirmed dead.

    Shocking death of a democratically elected representative. Thoughts with the husband and children who will have to continue without her.

    Why is this not being treated as a terrorist attack?
    I'm sure it will be.
    One of the reasons for not campaigning for a bit, I guess, is to check who supplied the gun and knife. Are there more people involved and are more people in danger

    Its a really sad day for that young family.
    One day messing around on a boat for the IN campaign and
    the next in mourning.

    This is her last twitter feed.
    You can see all sides pay their condolences

    But her husband and children must have wanted the last picture
    to be of them supporting the IN campaign as they have
    left it there.
