General election 2019: The story in the North East

If you're just waking up here is what happened overnight across the North East:

  • Newcastle Central was the first seat to be declared with Labour's Chi Onwurah keeping her seat but with a decreased majority
  • The first shock of the night came when the Conservatives took Blyth Valley, which has been Labour since it was created in 1950
  • There was further bad news for Labour when they lost Darlington, Stockton South, Redcar, Bishop Auckland, Sedgefield and North West Durham to the Conservatives. For Bishop Auckland and Redcar, it is the first Conservative MP they have had
  • Labour has held on to all the other seats in the region, but in almost every case with a reduced majority
  • The Brexit Party failed to win its top target of Hartlepool, with Labour holding on
Conservatives break Labour's 50-year hold in Blyth Valley

The first result is in and Newcastle Upon Tyne Central is a Labour hold

Chi Onwurah has been re-elected as the MP for Newcastle Upon Tyne Central, with a decreased majority.

The Labour candidate beat Conservative Emily Payne by 12,278 votes, 2,659 votes less than the majority at the 2017 election.

Ali Avaei of the Liberal Democrats came third and the Brexit Party's Mark Griffin came fourth.

Voter turnout was down by 2.2 percentage points since the last general election.

More than 37,000 people, 64.8% 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, Tay Pitman (Green) lost her £500 deposit after failing to win 5% of the vote.
