Pensioners in West Dorset will no longer get free bus travel before 9.30 in the morning from the 1st April.

The District Council's Executive Committee have agreed they can no longer afford to subsidise the scheme.

But £10,000 is being made available to help older people access community transport so they can still get to early morning medical appointments.
