Conservatives oust Labour in Prudhoe

Labour have been wiped out in Tynedale in the Northumberland County Council Elections.

The party lost both its seats in Prudhoe, as the Conservatives gained ground. The Conservatives also took the Bywell seat for the first time.

Potholes, by the numbers.

Two million, fourteen thousand, nine hundred and sixty-seven to be precise. That’s how many potholes Conservative-run councils have fixed since 2016.
