The Liberal Democrats suffered another heavy defeat in the North East after finishing fourth in Newcastle upon Tyne East.

Located in the North East of England is the seat of Newcastle Upon Tyne East. The constituency is primarily made up of large residential areas, including Byker - best known for the BBC1 children's drama Byker Grove, which launched the careers of TV favourites Ant and Dec.
The great shipbuilding industry of the Tyne has declined from its glory days - the Swan Hunter shipyard ceased operations in 2006. Instead, the service and retail sectors are now important for jobs. With two universities in Newcastle, one in five of the population is a student - the seventh highest proportion of all constituencies in England and Wales, according to ONS 2011 Census figures. Social housing accounts for one in three homes; one in four is rented privately.
Labour's Nick Brown has been MP here since 1983. In 2010, he held the seat with 45% of the votes; Liberal Democrats got 33.3%, Conservatives 16% and BNP 3.5%.
