One resident, who wanted to be known as Michelle, said it brought people who were "lonely and scared behind closed doors" into much needed contact with neighbours.

"It was amazing just to have the opportunity to take part," she said, adding: "There is not one person on our estate who isn't thankful for that.

"People are still talking about it and how much they loved it. It’s brought everyone together and talking to each other."

Middlesbrough South & Cleveland East: Conservative hold

Simon Clarke has been re-elected as the MP for Middlesbrough South & Cleveland East, with a significantly increased majority.

The Conservative candidate beat Labour's Lauren Dingsdale by 11,626 votes, more than double the majority at the 2017 election.

Jemma Joy of the Liberal Democrats came third and the Green Party's Sophie Brown came fourth.

Voter turnout was up by 0.3 percentage points since the last general election.

Nearly 48,000 people, roughly two-thirds of those eligible to vote, went to polling stations across the area on Thursday, in the first December general election since 1923.

Two of the four candidates, Jemma Joy (Liberal Democrat) and Sophie Brown (Green) lost their £500 deposits after failing to win 5% of the vote.
