MP Theresa May with members of Maidenhead Mosque
A tribute to murdered MP Jo Cox was paid by Theresa May at a special event at Maidenhead Mosque.
The Home Secretary was at the Islamic centre, in Holmanleaze, with several other faith leaders from the town to mark the breaking of the Ramadan fast on Monday.
As well as listening to traditional prayers, they also heard a talk about Islam, before the Maidenhead MP addressed the whole group.
She said: “Our Parliament was recalled so that tributes could be made to a very bright star who sadly, as we know, was murdered in her constituency.
“Several speakers quoted her maiden speech in which she said, as she went around her community, what she found was there was so many more things that unite us than divide us.
“And that’s very important and we should all remember that and coming together, like tonight, reminds us that we’re all part of one community.”
Paramedics were called to the scene of a medical emergency in Maidenhead on Monday morning (June 27).
A teenager who died after getting into difficulty in the Jubilee River has been described as a ‘gentle giant’ in a tribute from his school.
