Boris Johnson has thanked voters in the north of England for "breaking the voting habits of generations" to back the Conservatives. reports citing BBC.

Speaking in Tony Blair's old seat of Sedgefield, the PM said he knew "how difficult" that decision can be.

Mr Johnson won a Commons majority of 80, his party's biggest election win for 30 years, by sweeping aside Labour in its traditional heartlands.

In contrast, Labour suffered its worst election result since the 1930s.

Activists chanted "Boris" as Mr Johnson arrived in the County Durham constituency, which returned a Conservative MP on Thursday for the first time in 84 years.

The prime minister said he wanted to thank voters in the "incredible" constituencies in north-east England for placing their trust in the Conservatives.

They had "changed the political landscape" and "changed the Conservative Party for the better", he said.

"Everything that we do, everything that I do as your prime minister, will be devoted to repaying that trust," Mr Johnson added.

"We are the servants now and our job is to serve the people of this country and deliver on our priorities. And our priorities and their priorities are the same."

Leader Jeremy Corbyn said he had done "everything I could" to get Labour into power but expected to stand down "early next year", after a successor has been chosen by the party.
