The Police and Crime Commissioner for Dorset has confirmed he is looking at business sponsorship to meet the shortfall in the police budget.

Martyn Underhill says the force is the country's lowest funded and has seen the worst cuts.

He says he'll look at opportunities with other PCC's and reputable organisations to help projects that otherwise may not have gone ahead.
