Some of the Labour MPs who entered parliament in 2015, the same time as Jo Cox, have paid tribute to her in a new video.
Cox, who was killed last week, is described as "a mother, a fighter, a campaigner,an internationalist, a feminist, a proud Yorkshire lass"
"We wish to honour or friend, and fight for what she stood for. Across our communities, across our country, and across our world: we are far more united, and we have far more in common than that which divides us," the MPs say.
The MPs added: "She was our Jo."
MPs filled the Commons on Monday afternoon to pay tribute to Cox. Jeremy Corbyn said her very life was a “demonstration against despair”.
“Jo Cox didn’t just believe in loving her neighbour, she believed in loving her neighbour’s neighbour. She saw a a world of neighbours. She believed every life counted equally,” he said.
Backbench and frontbench MPs on all sides of the Commons also paid emotional tribute.
