Anne-Marie Trevelyan, the MP for Berwick-upon-Tweed, has been promoted to a role in Prime Minister Boris Johnson's Cabinet.

Ms Trevelyan now becomes International Development Secretary, having been promoted from her previous role as armed forces minister.

It comes as another MP from our region, the MP for Richmond Rishi Sunak, was appointed as Chancellor following Sajid Javid's resignation.

It was not a completely positive day for our region's Conservative MPs, however, with the sacking of former Northern Ireland Secretary Julian Smith.
