Lauder driver charged

A LAUDER woman has been charged with driving with no insurance or MOT.

The 40-year-old was stopped by police officers at around 5.30pm last Friday on the A6091 Melrose bypass because her Renault car had a faulty light.

Further enquiries by the officers revealed the driver was not legally able to drive the vehicle.

The discovery led to the woman’s car being seized under the S.165 Road Traffic Act 1988.

A Lothian and Borders Police spokesman said: “A report will be submitted to the procurator fiscal.”

Meanwhile, police are hunting for vandals who damaged a Ford Mondeo car on Burnfoot Road, Hawick, last weekend.
