In the UK, a man charged with murdering Tory MP, David Amess, could go on trial in March.

A preliminary date has been set after 25-year-old Ali Harbi Ali, from north London, appeared at the Old Bailey.

Mr. Ali has been remanded in custody until another hearing, in two weeks time.

David Amess was stabbed last Friday in Leigh-on-Sea, Essex.

The 69 year-old was holding a constituency surgery at the time.

The accused had apparently made an appointment to see the MP.

Tributes have since poured in, with his family saying their "hearts are shattered".

A two-minute silence was held in his memory in the town today.
