An inquest into the death of UK MP Sir David Amess, who was stabbed to death during a constituency surgery at a church, is due to be opened and adjourned.

Mr Amess, 69, was attacked at Belfairs Methodist Church in Leigh-on-Sea in Essex on October 15th.

The father-of-five was pronounced dead at the scene at 1.10pm and a preliminary postmortem examination report gave the cause of death as multiple stab wounds to the chest.

An inquest into the death of the Conservative MP for Southend West is due to be opened and adjourned at County Hall in Chelmsford on Wednesday.

A 25-year-old man is charged with the terrorist murder of Mr Amess.

Ali Harbi Ali appeared before the Old Bailey last Friday, where he was not asked to enter pleas to charges of murder and preparing acts of terrorism between May 1st, 2019 and September this year.
