City of Durham: Labour hold

Mary Foy has been elected MP for City of Durham, meaning that the Labour Party holds the seat with a decreased majority.

The new MP beat Conservative William Morgan by 5,025 votes. This was less than half Roberta Blackman-Woods’s 12,364 vote majority in the 2017 general election.

Amanda Hopgood of the Liberal Democrats came third and the Brexit Party's Lesley Wright came fourth.

Voter turnout was up by 0.6 percentage points since the last general election.

Nearly 49,000 people, 68.6% 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 five candidates, Jonathan Elmer (Green) lost his £500 deposit after failing to win 5% of the vote.

'Distracted' truck driver banned for two years after crash

A truck driver from County Durham has been given a suspended prison sentence and a two-year driving ban after severely injuring two others while distracted on the A66.

Carlisle Crown Court heard that Roy Stuart Cothill, 48, looked up from his tachograph too late to avoid hitting a braking car in front while driving between Penrith and Appleby.

The drivers of the two cars in front were hurt, with one told by his doctor he would "never by the same" after a bleed on his brain.

Cothill, from Front Street, in Pity Me, admitted two counts of causing serious injury by dangerous driving and was given a 16-month prison sentence suspended for two years. He must also complete 200 hours unpaid work.
