North East

The north-east is Labour`s most solid region, with the party taking almost all of the regions seats even in a bad year for them. The cities of Newcastle and Sunderland and the former Durham coalfields are all solidly and reliably Labour, with only the sparsely populated countryside towards the Scottish border providing safe Conservative territory.
