Turnout and CON majority
North Yorkshire MP Robert Goodwill has left his ministerial post as Theresa May continues her reshuffle.
The MP for Scarborough and Whitby, who has been an MP since 2005, had been an education minister since July 2017.
Almost £2m worth of funding has been approved to help crucial work needed on the North Yorkshire coast.
North Yorkshire County Council says it hopes the cash will help the borough council maintain the cliffs in Scarborough and the pier in Whitby.

The Conservatives have lost their majority and Britain has a hung parliament.
The Prime Minister is facing calls to stand down, with Boris Johnson an early favourite to replace her.
Conservative Robert Goodwill narrowly retained his Scarborough and Whitby seat, but his majority of 6,000 has been almost halved with Labour receiving over 20,000votes.
He says he's loyal to Theresa May, but thinks she'll be shell shocked and will be "considering her next move":
