Dorset made a fantastic effort last night in showing its appreciation for frontline workers battling the coronavirus pandemic.

For a third week, the whole country took to doorsteps, balconies and gardens to Clap for our Carers - and the campaign showed no signs of waning.

In these times of uncertainty, it's become a positive fixture. 

Clapping, cheering and the clattering of pots and pans could be heard all over Dorset. 

Weymouth firefighters came out in support of their frontline colleagues at their station on Radipole Lane.

Clap for our Carers is a national campaign which encourages us all to show our appreciation for healthcare workers, emergency services, armed services, delivery drivers, shop workers, teachers, waste collectors, manufacturers, postal workers, cleaners, vets, engineers and all those who are out there making an unbelievable difference to our lives in these challenging times.

It takes place on Thursdays at 8pm.
