The recent stormy weather conditions which saw heavy rainfall in the Borders over the course of yesterday, last night and early this morning looks set to subside soon, with no weather warnings in place.

However, Storm Angus has not completely passed unnoticed, as police have had to close the underpass at Duck Row, Jedburgh, today, as the Jed Water burst its banks from constant heavy rain all night.
