Brexit plane flies over MP Jo Cox’s memorial

By Joe Mellor, Deputy Editor

The referendum campaign sinks lower and lower and I think many would just like it to be over now.

Now a plane flying a Vote Leave banner flew over Trafalgar Square as Jo Cox’s husband paid an emotional tribute to her.

The event this afternoon was arranged on what would have been her 42nd birthday, until she was brutal murdered last week.

Mr Cox had been telling crowds his wife ‘lived for her beliefs’ and would have been spending the day campaigning for Britain to remain in the EU, as the plane flew over.


The fly past had originally been scheduled to take off at noon today but was delayed until  3.30pm because of poor weather conditions. It was organised by Britten-Norman Limited, independently of the official Vote Leave campaign, who has since apologised for the actions of the company.
