Prime Minister Boris Johnston was back in the area today. 

He officially opened the PPE factory in Seaton Delaval which makes protective clothing for the NHS, including isolation gowns, theatre hoods and hats, and masks.

Boris was joined by Council Leader Glen Sanderson and Blyth Valley MP, Ian Levy

Ian said:

“It was absolutely fantastic to welcome Boris Johnson to Seaton Delaval this afternoon.

The Prime Minister officially opened the PPE factory set up last year by Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust to guarantee supplies during the pandemic and beyond.

It is quite incredible, and I suspect unprecedented for a Prime Minister to visit the same constituency twice in two months.

I keep making the point that there is so much going on in Blyth Valley and I am extremely proud to represent such a proactive and resilient constituency. 

I am delighted that Boris Johnson shares that view.”
