Thieves have snatched two floodlights from one of the Borders Railway project sites in Galashiels.

They were removed from a tower at Winston Road where a tunnel is being constructed for the new line.

British Transport Police confirmed today the theft occurred between 5pm last Monday and 8am the following day.

Constable Morton Cowie said: “The lamps are pretty distinctive and I am appealing for anyone who has information or is offered them for sale in unusual circumstances to contact British Transport Police.

The floodlights, worth several hundred pounds, are black and square.
