Patel: We need to close MP security gaps

United Kingdom Home Secretary Priti Patel (pictured) stated on Sunday that the Home Office will need to lose any security gaps for Members of Parliament (MPs) where it feels there are any concerns.

Patel said that the department is currently considering a range of measures to help provide further protection for MPs, adding that the government will do "absolutely everything" to protect politicians. Moreover, she labelled the online abuse of MPs as "relentless" and "appalling."

Patel's comments come in the wake of the murder of Sir David Amess, which has subsequently been declared a "terrorist incident." This is the second murder of an MP in two years.
