Jedburgh-based bus company Peter Hogg said this week it had no further information as to what caused an accident in the town last Thursday morning.

Their bus left the main A68 road at around 9.45am, crossed a grassy area and bounced over two walls before coming to rest, teetering over a drop to the Jed Water, close to Duck Row bridge.

Police said a small number of passengers were on board, who were left shaken and were checked over by paramedics at the scene.

A spokesperson for Police Scotland said: “The road was closed for around an hour while the vehicle was safely removed.”

Reader Bill McBurnie told us he came across the bus when walking his dog, and sent us this photograph.

Investigations are ongoing to determine what caused the bus to leave the road.
