Nine-year-old missing girl 'safe and well'

A nine-year-old Redcar girl who had not been seen since she went out on her bike this morning has been found.

Cleveland Police said the schoolgirl was last seen at 09:30 on Rydal Avenue in the town, close to Redcar Racecourse.

The appeal was shared on social media thousands of times in less than an hour and a police spokesman confirmed the missing child had been found "safe and well".

The spokesman thanked the public for helping to trace her.

Anna Turley libel trial: Former Labour MP wins £75,000 damages

A former Labour MP who sued a union for libel has won her court battle and been awarded £75,000 damages.

Anna Turley - who lost her seat in Redcar in the general election - had sued Unite and blogger Stephen Walker.

She said a 2017 article on Mr Walker's Skwawkbox blog, which contained a press statement from Unite, gave the impression she was dishonest in her application to join the union.

Ms Turley also claimed Unite misused her private information.

A Unite spokeswoman said Unite bosses were "very disappointed" with the decision. Lawyers said the union and Mr Walker wanted to appeal.

North East has seen 'political earthquake'

Richard Moss

Political Editor, BBC Look North

The North East has seen the equivalent of a political earthquake - the region has not seen as many seats change hands in one election in living memory.

Margaret Thatcher never had as many MPs in this region as Boris Johnson will have. And some now represent constituencies we were told would never vote Conservative.

Communities built on the steel industry, like Consett and Redcar, and former mining areas like Blyth Valley and Bishop Auckland have placed their trust in the Tories.

The Labour party chairman Ian Lavery, a former miner, survived by the skin of his teeth in Wansbeck. Laura Pidcock, a Corbynite who could have been in the running to be the next Labour leader, saw North West Durham's voters reject her.

So what happened? Get Brexit Done certainly resonated. The gains were all in leave-voting seats which seem to have blamed Labour for the parliamentary deadlock.

But Labour candidates will tell you that Jeremy Corbyn was a bigger issue on the doorstep. Not many of their voters wanted him anywhere near Number 10.

But there are dangers. Every economic study suggests it's the North East that will suffer the most harm from leaving the European Union. And just talking about the idea of a Northern Powerhouse will no longer be enough.

Constituents of these new Conservative MPs will expect them and their party to deliver Brexit, but also more investment in the North.

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
