DISAPPOINTMENT, sadness and respect were some of many emotions felt by those in the centre of Gibraltar yesterday afternoon.

Gibraltarians had turned out to fill Casemates Square to welcome UK PM David Cameron to Casemates Square for his Stronger In Europe rally at 5pm.

It was the first visit from a serving UK prime minister since 1968.

But after the tragic murder of Labour MP and mum-of-two Jo Cox, in west Yorkshire, all EU referendum campaigning was suspended for 24 hours just minutes before Cameron was due to arrive.

The rally in the main square was called off but Cameron did address a private audience of 30 guests in The Rock Hotel before boarding a place back to London.

The Olive Press spoke to people in Casemates Square about their reaction.
