'People must not go on holiday with other households'

More details of the restrictions coming in at midnight tonight to seven North East areas have been revealed.

As well as a ban on socialising between households, and restrictions on pubs, only essential visits to care homes and hospitals will be allowed, and people should not go on holiday with other households, Berwick Conservative MP Anne-Marie Trevelyan said.

She added: "I will be reviewing figures on a ward level and making the case for wards or areas to be removed from the restricted area as soon as possible.

"I do not want to see these restrictions in place any longer than is necessary and I will be pushing for them to be lifted as soon as case numbers start to decline once more."

Former Lib Dem president Baroness Maddock dies at home in Berwick

Liberal Democrat peer and former MP Baroness Diana Maddock has died at the age of 75, the party has confirmed.

She died at her home in Berwick-upon-Tweed, Northumberland, following a short illness.

Baroness Maddock was MP for Christchurch between 1993 and 1997 and also served as Lib Dem president from 1998 to 2000.

Appointed to the Lords following her election defeat in 1997, she most recently acted as deputy chief whip for the party's group in the upper chamber.

She had been treated successfully for breast cancer twice, continuing her work in the House of Lords throughout, but she was informed in the spring that the cancer had returned.

Acting Lib Dem leader Sir Ed Davey said: "It is with great sadness that we have learned of the death of Diana Maddock.

"Diana helped shape the heart of the Liberal Democrat Party.

She is survived by her two daughters from her first marriage, Anna and Becki, along with husband and fellow peer Lord Alan Beith, formerly the MP for Berwick-upon-Tweed for more than 40 years.

Coronavirus in the North East: Fears virus cost will 'shelve' A1 dual plan

A Northumberland councillor has claimed the coronavirus crisis will further dent the chances of the A1 being dualled throughout the county.

In December 2014, the then Prime Minister David Cameron announced £290m for a scheme that includes two sections of dualling – Morpeth to Felton and Alnwick to Ellingham – as well as other improvements north of Ellingham.

Now Georgina Hill, the independent member for Berwick East, said she fears the chances that the Government will dual the A1 all the way to the Scottish border within the next 15 years "have moved from slim to almost non-existent".

She said: “The financial cost of the crisis is enormous so you have to doubt whether the Government is going to be able or willing to release money to dual the rest of the A1.

"There may even be some concern now that some of the existing plan may be shelved.

“Also, industry experts are predicting that road usage will go down with, for example, a large increase in people working from home."

The latest targets for both sections were for work to start in 2021 and the new routes to be open to traffic in 2023.

Berwick MP may be promoted in reshuffle

BBC Newcastle

Berwick MP Anne-Marie Trevelyan (pictured) is expected to be one of a number of female MPs to be given promotions in Boris Johnson's first major cabinet reshuffle since the Conservatives' general election victory.

The Prime Minister will make a number of changes over the next 24 hours although it is unclear how wide-ranging they will be.

He left his cabinet largely untouched following his party's decisive election victory in December, pending what sources suggested at the time would be a more significant overhaul after the UK left the EU on 31 January.

Mr Johnson is expected to make changes at junior ministerial level - namely parliamentary under-secretaries of state - that could see a 50/50 gender balance in a push to promote female talent.

There is also a plan to make at least 60% of parliamentary private secretaries women by the summer - compared with just 18% at the moment.

Berwick-Upon-Tweed: Conservative hold

Anne-Marie Trevelyan has been re-elected as the MP for Berwick-Upon-Tweed, with an increased majority.

The Conservative MP beat Labour's Trish Williams by 14,835 votes, 3,054 more votes than the majority at the 2017 election.

Tom Hancock of the Liberal Democrats came third and the Green Party's Thomas Stewart came fourth.

Voter turnout was down by 1.5 percentage points since the last general election.

More than 42,000 people, 70.3% of those eligible to vote, went to polling stations across the area on Thursday, in the first December general election since 1923.

One of the four candidates, Mr Stewart lost his £500 deposit after failing to win 5% of the vote.
