An EU referendum debate scheduled to take place in Lynn this evening has been cancelled following the murder of Labour MP Jo Cox.

Mrs Cox, who represented the Batley and Spen constituency in West Yorkshire, was killed in an incident in Birstall yesterday. A man is currently under arrest in connection with her death.

Both the Remain and Leave campaigns have suspended their activities as a mark of respect.

Organisers of tonight’s event, which had been due to take place at the King’s Lynn Academy, say they will issue a full statement later today.
