Posted on Dec 17 2017 - 3:48pm by admin

Mr Hoyle, who serves as John Bercow’s deputy, said he was “truly devastated” following the passing of daughter Natalie Lewis-Hoyle.

Taking to social media, Mr Hoyle wrote: “I am truly devastated by the death of our beautiful daughter Natalie.

“Our family will never be the same without our loving granddaughter, sister & aunty.

“Thank you for the kind support we’ve received it is overwhelming.

“Please continue to respect our privacy & allow us to grieve.”

Police are believed to be investigating the sudden death of Ms Lewis-Hoyle, with mother Miriam confirming Essex Police had opened a case on the young woman.

The mourning mother claimed Natalie’s phone was left behind before her death, and called out for witnesses to help her “find out what happened to her in the hours before her death”

Taking to facebook she wrote: “It is with unbearable sadness that I have to announce the sudden death of my beautiful, much-adored daughter Natalie. 

“I need your help.

“If Natty contacted you, by phone, text, messenger or any other means on Thursday evening 14th December between 20.00 and midnight please let me know through my Facebook page or contact A/Inspector Jon Loudon at Essex Police incident no. 158

“Any little scrap of information may be more relevant than you imagine.

“Her mobile phone is missing and may have been left on the 9.18 from Liverpool Street to Ipswich on Thursday evening. If you found an I-phone please hand it in quoting Essex Police incident 158.

“Natalie is my only child, my mini-me. Please help me find out what happened to her in the hours before her death.”

Politicians were quick to share their sympathies with Mr Hoyle following the tragic news.

Labour MP for Ashton under Lyne Angela Rayner said: “So sorry to hear the sad news of the death of Natalie, sending you and the family our deepest condolences”

MP Anna Turley added: “Oh Lindsay I’m so so sorry. 

“Sending you all the love in the world.”

James Frith, Labour MP for Bury North, added: “This is desperately sad news to hear Lindsay. 

“Love and prayers to you all. And our deepest sympathies.”

Mr Hoyle was elected as the MP for Chorley in 1997 with a 10,000 vote majority and has served as Deputy Speaker for 17 years.

He was elected to the post in 2010 in the first-ever elections for the role, beating six other candidates.

The secret ballot also saw him named Chairman of Ways and Means, a group of senior MPs who serve as one of the Speaker’s three deputies. 

In this year’s snap General Election, Mr Hoyle comfortably defeated Conservative candidate Caroline Moon by more than 7,500 votes. 

The 60-year-old MP ran a screen printing business in Chorley before being elected.
