Speaking outside Number 10, Theresa May said: "We will fulfill the promise of Brexit together and, over the next five years, build a country in which no-one and no community is left behind.
Trevelyan, the Brexiteer who held the seat against Labour with an 11,781 majority is one of only three Conservative MPs to represent the North East.
The Tories failed to gain ground in the region, with the only major changes being the loss of the Stockton South constituency to Labour, balanced out by the gaining of Middlesbrough South and East Cleveland from Labour.
