Tory candidate in Jo Cox’s seat joked ‘nobody’s been shot yet’ at hustings

The Conservative candidate in the former seat of murdered MP Jo Cox has apologised after saying at a hustings event that “we not yet shot anybody so that’s wonderful.”

There were gasps from the crowd at the hustings event in Batley and Spen when Dr Ann Myatt praised the “first rate” event then said: “We have here people of all faiths, we have here people from different parts of the community, and we have not yet shot anybody so that’s wonderful.”
