VISIT TODAY'S VIGILS FOR MURDERED MP JO COX



Written by Dont Panic

At 4PM today there will be vigils around the world for slain Labour MP Jo Cox.

Her constituency Batley and Spen, Dublin, Auckland, Manchester's Piccadilly Gardens, New York, Paris and Brussels will see people gather to remember the late politician who was devoted to humanitarian causes.

There will be an hour-long event in the capital's Trafalgar Square, with speakers including Bill Nighy and Malala Yousafzai plus alumni from the musical Les Miserables will perform some of Jo's favourite music.

The River Thames will host a floating commemoration, leaving from the house boat community in Wapping where the Cox family lived.

It will be hosted by journalist and Cox's long-term friend Mariella Frostrup, while representatives from faith communities will lay roses in tribute.
