RAB Stewart, the Labour candidate for Ettrick, Roxburgh and Berwickshire, was among a Borders delegation attending Saturday’s London demonstration against public spending cuts.

He was marching with a group from the region, including a school janitor, a care manager, a textile worker on the minimum wage and an NHS employee.

Meanwhile, Ian Miller, the Labour candidate for Midlothian South, Tweeddale and Lauder, will formally launch his election campaign in Galashiels town centre this Saturday.

Mr Miller will be leafleting and talking to the public between 10.15am and noon, and will be supported by Galashiels-born Ian Davidson, Westminster MP for Glasgow South West.
