'Locals only' homes built in Dorset village

Villagers in Dorset have joined together to build five new affordable homes exclusively for people with connections to the area.

About 60% of properties in Worth Matravers are second homes with those left on the market often costing too much for locals to buy or rent.

Members of the community bought a plot of land to build the new homes with strict criteria for those wishing to move in.
