Twitter Web App : This afternoon I joined Northumbria Police, @newsfromYHN, @northumbriapcc & Councillor Brian Hunter on a walkabout around the D roads in West Denton. I will continue to work with agencies to address concerns raised by local residents.

iPhone : Out earlier today in North Kenton with councillors & activists chatting to residents. Range of issues raised including the #Brexit crisis, silencing of Parliament, local services & #Universal Credit.

iPhone : Fantastic to join faith leaders and community groups from across Newcastle this morning for the annual Peace Walk to celebrate Newcastle as a vibrant, inclusive, welcoming & diverse city.

Twitter Web App : Thank you to Google UK for sharing their #BeInternetLegends programme with Waverley Primary pupils & teachers earlier today - great to see how this free, online safety programme is being highlighted to local schools catherinemckinnellmp.co.uk/newcastle-mp-j…

iPhone : Decades of underinvestment mean we are in urgent need of a transport revolution. #HS2, #NPR and East Coast Mainline deliver the biggest benefits together, can be built together and can be afforded together. Any Govt serious about addressing economic imbalances must recognise this twitter.com/bbcrichardmoss…

iPhone : I have written to Michael Gove asking for full disclosure of his knowledge of Vote Leave’s illegal payments. If he does not make disclosure, as Secretary of State responsible for data protection, he is breaking the Ministerial Code.

iPhone : The prorogation is illegal. This is the first test of whether Boris Johnson will obey the law: will he let MPs come back to work? He has misled everyone, including the Queen. Surely there must be consequences? bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotla…

iPhone : Once again sowing seeds of division rather than facing up to his democratic duties. Never mind ‘donnez moi un break’ - let’s get back to Parliament & hold this totally untrustworthy Prime Minister to account #recallnow #unlawfulprorogation twitter.com/tnewtondunn/st…

iPhone : Boris Johnson will find himself in an untenable position in Parliament... every member that believes in our constitution would simply say, its over

Twitter Web App : I couldn't be any happier about this decision by NHS England & NICE today - finally Nicole, Jessica & others will have NHS access to #Brineura to fight #BattenDisease. Pleased to have been able to work with Nicole Rich on this campaign catherinemckinnellmp.co.uk/newcastle-mp-o…

iPhone : If Parliament was sitting we would be asking Qs & taking evidence on these no deal #Brexit pledges & exposing them for what they are - irresponsible half truths & a con on the British public. The PM suspended Parliament because neither he nor his Govt can stand up to scrutiny twitter.com/hmtreasury/sta…
