Another new seat created by boundary changes, Cramlington and Killingworth contains areas of Northumberland, North Tyneside and Newcastle.

The Blyth Valley MP from the last Parliament, Ian Levy, is hoping to defend the seat for the Conservatives. A former health worker, Mr Levy’s victory in the former Labour stronghold was one of the major shocks of the 2019 General Election.

His main opponent is likely to be Labour’s Emma Foody, assistant general secretary of the Co-operative Party, who used to work at the North East Ambulance Service. Also standing is Thom Campion, a Lib Dem councillor in Newcastle, and Scott Lee, an independent councillor who represents Cramlington.
