  10. Bradford appoint McCall as manager

    BBC West Yorkshire Sport

    Scotland coach Stuart McCall is appointed as Bradford City manager for the second time on a two-year deal.

    Stuart McCall

    The 52-year-old was previously boss at Valley Parade between 2007 and 2010 and replaces Phil Parkinson, who left for Bolton Wanderers on 9 June.

    McCall also had two playing spells with the Bantams, appearing in the Premier League, and had been out of management since a short spell at Rangers in 2015.

  11. Standing ovation in the Commons

    Speaker Bercow wraps up the tributes by getting everyone in the Commons to shout "aye" in support of the motion to remember Jo Cox. 

    To say it is resounding is an understatement - and he doesn't even bother to ask for "noes". MPs then burst into spontaneous applause - a standing ovation - before they begin to file out of the Commons.

  12. Baroness Pinnock: Heavy mood in Birstall

    Lib Dem Baroness Pinnock, one of Jo Cox's constituents who was due to campaign with her on the day she was killed, speaks of her "support and encouragement".

    Baroness Pinnock

    She says in Birstall people usually stop to say hello but since her death the mood has been "heavy and somber - beyond words". 

    She concludes by saying: "We are all the poorer for her passing."

  13. She had a vision of a better world - Holly Lynch, MP for Halfax

    Holly Lynch, MP for Hailfax, says this will be the hardest speech she will ever have to give, but it was easy to write because there was so much good to say about Mrs Cox.

    Holly Lynch

    "She had a vision of the world better than the one that has taken her from us," Ms Lynch says, describing her as "collegiate" and happy to work "across the benches" to make things better.

    Ms Lynch worked as a Labour whip and says Mrs Cox "wasn't the easiest to whip" because she often put her children's bedtime ahead of late night votes.

  14. West Yorkshire's weather: Sunny spells and largely dry

    Owain Wyn Evans

    Weather presenter, BBC Look North

    It's an improving picture across West Yorkshire this afternoon.

    There'll be plenty of sunny spells, largely dry with a few isolated showers.

    Weather graph

    Light to moderate south westerly winds, and temperature highs today of about 20C (68F).

    This evening, it'll remain dry for most, a few patches of mist and fog are possible along the coast. A mild and muggy night, with temperature lows of 14C (57F).

  15. Leeds West MP Rachel Reeves breaks down as she remembers her friend

    Next on her feet is Labour MP Rachel Reeves, who says she has known Jo and her husband Brendan for more than a decade.

    Rachel Reeves in the commons

    She says Mrs Cox spent a day shadowing her before she was elected and it was clear "Jo had a way with people from all walks of life".

    When the seat of Batley and Spen opened up, Ms Reeves says Jo felt she had a responsibility to stand.

    The Labour MP says she was in that constituency the day after her death when "a woman came over to me and said she hadn't known Jo but her death had made her want to be a bit more like her - a better mother, better wife, better person".

    Ms Reeves breaks down at the end of her speech as she tries to say that "Batley and Spen will elect another MP but no-one will replace a mother".
