Afternoon stops are at Lynemouth, Cresswell, Widdrington Village, Red Row, Hadston, Togston, High Hauxley and Low Hauxley.

Sir Alan said: “The surgery tour is usually planned for early autumn, but because the House of Commons is sitting for much of September, this year I will be out and about in July, August and September.

“Representing such a big, rural constituency, it is very important to find out about specific issues in specific areas, which is why my Annual Tour is so crucial.”
