Millions of meals claimed in Yorkshire Eat Out scheme

More than five million meals have been claimed in Yorkshire and the Humber as part of the Eat Out to Help Out scheme, the government has said.

The scheme allowed diners to save 50% on food and soft drinks up to the value of £10 between Mondays and Wednesdays throughout August in a bid to support businesses as coronavirus restrictions were eased.

New government figures show that about 5,463,000 meals were claimed for across the region.

However, these figures are for restaurants and cafes with less than 25 outlets across the country, meaning big chains like Greggs or Nandos aren't included.

In total, customers saved about £31,576,000, the figures show.

Leeds city centre saw the highest number of claims with 294,000, followed by Scarborough and Whitby with 269,000.

Across England, more than fifty-one million meals were claimed for, with a total discount to diners of almost £300m.

Scarborough & Whitby: Conservative hold

Robert Goodwill has been re-elected as the MP for Scarborough & Whitby, with an increased majority.

The Conservative candidate beat Labour's Hugo Fearnley by 10,270 votes, more than double the majority at the 2017 election.

Robert Lockwood of the Liberal Democrats came third and the Yorkshire Party's Lee Derrick came fourth.

Voter turnout was down by 1.7 percentage points since the last general election.

Nearly 50,000 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.

One of the four candidates, Lee Derrick (the Yorkshire Party) lost his £500 deposit after failing to win 5% of the vote.

Listen: Yorkshire MP's hopes for the future of education

Talks will resume at Downing Street this morning to try to finalise a deal with the Democratic Unionists to support a minority Conservative government.

Meanwhile, one of the government's new Education Ministers, Scarborough and Whitby MP, Robert Goodwill, has been talking about his hopes for the future.

Mr Goodwill says in his experience, schools just want things to run properly:

What happened in England's biggest county?

We have one of the of the most dramatic results in recent General Election history.

Instead of the expected clear increased majority in the House Of Commons, the Conservatives lost seats and we have a hung parliament.

All North Yorkshire MPs kept their seats and the Conservatives continue to form a ring around the Labour seat of York Central.

Here's Phil Bodmer to round up what happened in England's largest county:
