Mair, who had denied murder, chose not to give any evidence in his defence.

Mrs Cox’s husband, Brendan, her parents, Jean and Gordon Leadbeater, and her sister, Kim, were all in court for the verdicts.

Mair, dressed in a dark suit and blue tie, remained impassive as the verdicts were read out, after one hour of deliberations.

Mair was also found guilty of having a firearm with intent, causing grievous bodily harm with intent to 78-year-old Bernard Kenny, who tried to help the MP, and having an offensive weapon, namely a dagger.
