Politicians have been warned to review their security after Labour MP Jo Cox was shot and stabbed to death in the street outside her constituency advice surgery in Birstall.

 A Number 10 spokeswoman said a reminder of safety guidance has been sent out to MPs after Mrs Cox was attacked in Birstall, West Yorkshire.

The advice includes steps representatives can take to stay safe when they are "out and about'' and suggests if they have any concerns they should contact their local police.

Mrs Cox, the mother of two children, aged three and five, was attacked by a man reportedly shouting "Britain first'' at lunchtime on Thursday.

Her death comes three months after a man was cautioned for sending her "malicious communications'', but police have confirmed this was not the same man who was arrested on Thursday following the attack.
