Two more cases of coronavirus have been confirmed in the Dorset Council area.

That takes the total hear to 25.

With 15 cases in Bournemouth, Poole and Christchurch, the county now has 40 confirmed cases overall.

Last night the county paused to pay tribute to the NHS staff battling coronavirus - with a round of applause. 

The sentiment was echoed across the country.

Prince Charles who himself has tested positive for Covid-19 was among members of the royal family who joined in the salute to healthcare workers at 8pm last night.
