Kevan Jones has been re-elected as the MP for Durham North, with a significantly decreased majority.

The Labour candidate beat Conservative Ed Parson by 4,742 votes, after winning by a margin of 12,939 votes in the 2017 election.

Peter Telford of the Brexit Party came third and Liberal Democrat Craig Martin came fourth.
