Listen: £2m boost for cliff and pier repairs on east coast

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.

Herring Gulls have gained a notorious reputation in recent years for their opportunistic attacks for food, especially when raising their chicks.

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:

Listen: 'Shell shocked': Robert Goodwill Conservative MP for Scarborough and Whitby

Theresa May's decision to call a snap general election has backfired.

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":
