Two fire crews tackled a bale fire in a field close to Newtown St Boswells on Sunday night.

Around 30 bales of hay were reported to be alight close to Bowden Road, just outside the village, at 8pm.

Crews from Lauder and Jedburgh allowed the bales to burn down and also used a high pressure hose to control the fire.

They left the scene at shortly before 10.30pm.

The cause of the fire has not yet been established.
