MURDERED Tory MP Sir David Amess is being laid to rest in Westminster today at a special service for family, friends and top politicians.
Boris Johnson is among the throngs of mourners attending the ceremony in honour of the killed father-of-five.
A tribute from Pope Francis was read at the requiem mass for the devoted Catholic, who was killed holding a constituency surgery in Southend last month.
The Pontiff called for the guests to stiffen their resolve to "combat evil with good" and "build a society for ever greater justice."
Sir David, 69, was stabbed to death on October 15 at a church in Leigh-on-Sea where he was meeting voters.
Brit citizen Ali Harbi Ali, 25, has been charged with the MP's murder as prosecutors alleged "religious and ideological motivations".
MPs began gathering at Westminster Cathedral this morning for the 10.30am service.
Some Cabinet Ministers were pictured wearing black as they entered No10 for their weekly meeting ahead of the short walk to the service afterwards.
Top Tories including Michael Gove and Jacob Rees-Mogg took their places inside the Cathedral.
Home Secretary Priti Patel chatted to Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer before the service started.
Former Conservative PMs David Cameron, Theresa May and John Major squished in beside Mr Johnson, Ms Patel and Speaker Lindsay Hoyle in the front row.
Mr Johnson tweeted after: "Today we mourn the death of Sir David Amess, a beloved colleague, public servant and friend, and pay tribute to his immense contribution to politics, to the people of Southend and to this country."
