Vigils held for murdered MP Jo Cox

VIGILS were held around Rotherham to mark what would have been murdered MP Jo Cox’s 42nd birthday.

The popular MP was shot and stabbed after holding a surgery in Birstall, West Yorkshire, on June 16.

Two events in Rotherham and two in Dinnington last Wednesday evening had the aim: “Showing the world we have far more in common with each other than that which divides us.”

Collections were made for the Royal Voluntary Service, The White Helmets and Hope Not Hate.

Tommy Mair, who is accused of Mrs Cox’s murder, has appeared at court and been remanded in custody.
