Portland Town Councillors are to go back to the drawing board over plans to put up their council tax precept by 1000 per cent.

Wessex FM has learnt that a meeting will now take place next month - which will consider the request to remove all previous decisions on the Portland Precept - and start from a blank sheet of paper.

Campaigners on the island who now have a petition signed by more than two thousand people are saying it's a victory for people power.

A public meeting at All Saints Church in Easton tonight WILL still go ahead.
