How terrifying that this can happen - not going to start speculating about how/why it's happened, but hope she pulls through.

I just saw this too. Shocked and stunned. Wishing her the best.

Oh my god. She is my friend. Oh no. How serious?

DoinItFine Thu 16-Jun-16 14:38:51

She's in critocal condition they are saying.

Witness reporting the man who shot her shouted "Britain first!"

WTF??

This is utterly dreadful. I spent six years as a caseworker to two different MPs and know first-hand how vulnerable they are at their advice surgeries. Appalling that they can't even do their jobs without the risk of violence. Really hoping Jo pulls through.

It is not really clear what has happened, but the Britain First Facebook page would appear to have been deleted.
