In a statement, Essex Police said: "We were called to an address in Eastwood Road North shortly after 12.05pm today (Friday 15 October).

"We attended and found a man injured.

"He was treated by emergency services but, sadly, died at the scene.

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

"He is currently in custody."

Foreign Affairs Minister Simon Coveney described the killing as a "shocking and tragic incident".

He said: "Our thoughts and sincere sympathies are with family, friends and political colleagues of Sir David Amess MP."
