Police praise for common riding revellers

A SENIOR police officer in Hawick has praised the “positive behaviour from members of the public” during the town’s common riding last weekend.

Inspector Carol Wood said: “It was pleasing to see there was no disorder during the common riding and I would like to thank all those in attendance for following the guidance of police and stewards to ensure a safe and enjoyable event.

“I would also like to thank the organisers and our partner agencies who have worked tirelessly to ensure the event was a success.”
