  • Alex Mayer MEP Yasmine Dar Keir Starmer MP and Julie Ward MEP at the newly named Place Jo Cox

Batley and Spen MP Tracy Brabin said: "Today I had the honour of attending the unveiling of a square in Brussels renamed after my inspirational predecessor, Jo Cox".

"Jo was killed in brutal and terrible circumstances", Corbyn said at the ceremony, adding that the MP "lived her life to make lives better for everybody else".

"After Jo was killed, it felt like there was a real hope that some things would change", her sister Kim Leadbeater told a gathering at the newly named "place Jo Cox" in the city centre that was attended by Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn.

"Mr Mayor, thank you very much and thank you to the people of Brussels for this wonderful, truly wonderful gesture". After the ceremony, he met EU Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier.

The mother-of-two was murdered by Thomas Mair, a right-wing extremist in her West Yorkshire constituency, back in June 2016.

Ryder Cup spectator treated after being struck by Brooks Koepka’s tee shot
Koepka, a three-time major victor who is playing in his first Ryder Cup , signed a glove and gave it to the woman. The stray ball was hit by USA team member Brooks Koepka , who was playing a shot on the sixth hole this morning.

"She had many happy times living there and made some deep and long-lasting friendships".

Mr Close said Mrs Cox's "investment in women's rights" and her love for Brussels were "absolutely remarkable".

He said the city would continue to "prevent the poison of hatred to spread" and wished, whatever happened in the Brexit negotiations, that the United Kingdom "will always remain part of Europe".

The modest square named in her honour is in a downtown area Cox knew well; the gesture by the city council is part of a drive to ensure more streets are named after women.

After the speeches, a choir led by close friend Suzy Sumner performed music including an African liberation song in a nod to her work on that continent and a traditional Balkan folksong in memory of Mrs Cox's love for the region.
