Thousands of people have gathered around the world to remember the life of Labour MP Jo Cox on what would have been her 42nd birthday.

The mother of two died last week after being shot and stabbed in Birstall, near Leeds.

Her widower Brendan and two young children joined friends, colleagues and high-profile campaigners in London. Meanwhile, this was the scene in her home town of Batley in Yorkshire.
