Jo Cox Killing Led To MPs Security Costs Soaring To Over £150,000 A Month

He said: “Jo’s head was in her lap and she was pleading for Jo to stand up, talking about her kids.

“Her hands and clothes were covered in blood. She was the only person there helping her.”

David Honeybell, who had gone to see Cox before her surgery, told jurors that after the attack the man calmly walked away.

He said: “He just walked away with not a care in the world, he just walked away.”

Another eyewitness, Stephen Connolly, said: “It was very cold, he just walked away.”

Mair denies Cox’s murder, possession of a firearm with intent to commit an indictable offence and possession of an offensive weapon – a dagger.

He has also pleaded not guilty to causing grievous bodily harm with intent to Carter-Kenny on the same date.

Clarke Rothwell was in a nearby sandwich shop when Mair allegedly launched his attack.

He told jurors he heard a “popping” noise and a woman scream.

Cox then slumped to the floor before her attacker shot her in the stomach, he said.

The man shouted words like “this is for Britain” and “put Britain first” before reloading his gun and shooting for a third time, the witness told jurors.
