The man who shot MP Jo Cox shouted "Britain First, Britain First", according to an eye witness. The claim came from Clarke Rothwell, who was within yards of the shocking scene in Birstall.
He described how the gunman had what seemed to be an old gun and was also stabbing the MP with a large hunting knife.Mr Rothwell, a 42-year-old gas engineer, said: "I was outside the sandwich shop close to the Library when I heard a popping sound.
"I looked round and there was a guy standing over a woman on the floor.
"He seemed to have what looked like an old gun, like a musket, in his hand and he shot her again in the middle.
"He then seemed to shoot a third time, towards her head or face.
"He was also stabbing at her with what looked like a hunting knife, about a foot long.
"He was stabbing her and waving the knife around.
"A man who I know as Bernard tried to get near but the man swung his knife around and caught him in the stomach. Blood started coming out.
"He was shouting what sounded like `Britain First, Britain First' but then seemed to panic and hurried off.
"He seemed scared and hurried off towards Union Street, dumping a jacket on the floor."I got into my van and tried to follow him but I lost him."
