Painted rainbows are appearing in windows across the county because of the coronavirus outbreak.

You might have spotted these rainbows in windows across Dorset. 

They're being painted by local children who can't go to school anymore have been drawing and painting them and putting them on display.

Dorset Police have even been getting involved

The idea is for other children to spot them.

Pictures are being posted on the social media group Dorset Art Eye Spy - which was formerly 'Dorset Hidden Books'.

Group owners have changed the purpose of the group from a book hide-and-seek project because of concerns about the coronavirus outbreak.
