Living with a lack of local television news

I moved to the borders from Midlothian some years ago, but what I still miss is being able to watch local Scottish news.

I find it very annoying that just a few miles down the A7 the ITV news coverage switches to English and the Borders cease to exist. BBC Radio Scotland think we’re important enough to provide local news, thankfully, but can only give us national TV news. I want to know what’s happening where I live, not Cumbria.

I agree with your comment last week – Mr Hunt should stop sidelining us.

I’ll back Midlothian South, Tweeddale and Lauderdale MSP Christine Grahame on this. Where do I sign?
