Leeds faith leaders unite in memory of murdered MP Jo Cox

Leaders from different faiths have united to create a video in memory of murdered MP Jo Cox as part of events to mark the first anniversary of her death.

Imam Qari Asim, of Leeds Makkah Mosque, and Rabbi Esther Hugenholtz, of Sinai Synagogue in Leeds, use the film to "celebrate what they have in common" and aim to build closer community ties.

It is part of The Great Get Together - a nationwide event running from 16 to 18 June to mark the death of the MP who was shot and stabbed in her Batley and Spen constituency on 16 June last year.

The 'Love Actually' styled video is intended to reinforce Ms Cox's first speech to parliament when she said: "We are far more united and have far more in common than that which divides us".
