The Mayor of Weymouth Town Council is urging residents to look after themselves and follow the government restrictions.

Graham Winter wants us to make sure elderly neighbours or vulnerable members of the community are not forgotten.

He told Wessex FM:

"There have been many acts of kindness taking place in Weymouth.

"Any elderly people who are isolated can phone their local councillor.

Mayor Winter is also urging the government to offer financial support to workers who will be hit hard by the lockdown.

"There are a lot of people on low wages and zero hours contracts who will find it really difficult.

"I also hope the government will do what it can to help people in rented accommodation who can't afford their rent."

"We should all be following the following the government's guidelines. 

"That is the crucial thing."
