Councillors have voted in favour of setting up two temporary travellers' sites in Dorset.

An emergency meeting of Poole Borough Council on Monday evening saw Oakdale and Creekmoor chosen from a shortlist of 90 despite objections from residents and businesses.

Separate planning applications are set to be submitted in the next two weeks and the sites could open by the summer.
