Courts closure fight continues

Solicitors from across the Borders are to write a joint letter to Holyrood’s justice committee putting forward their case again for Peebles and Duns courts to remain open.

Members of Selkirkshire, Roxburgh and Peebles Faculties of Procurators and Solicitors met John Lamont MSP on Wednesday.

Last week it emerged that the creation of a justice centre in Galashiels could prompt further closures.
