£21million has been paid to 1,700 businesses in Dorset so far, to help them through the coronavirus pandemic.

The money has been distributed by Dorset Council and comes from two types of government grant, a small business grant and a retail, hospitality and leisure grant.

Around 5,500 businesses in Dorset have now registered to receive the funding.

Dorset Council say they are working as hard to get the rest of the grants paid as quickly as they can.
