THE News was victorious in petitioning the government to look at how business rates are currently set.

The campaign was launched last month.

An online petition set up by Johnston Press calling for a review of the business rates attracted nearly 3,000 signatures.

Chancellor George Osborne then announced the government would speed up its review.
