Court in firing line

COUNCILLOR Kenneth Gunn is urging colleagues on Scottish Borders Council to fight the threat of closure to Selkirk Sheriff Court.

He’s asked fellow Selkirkshire councillors Vicky Davidson and Carolyn Riddell-Carre to back his campaign to oppose plans by the Scottish Court Service to axe or downgrade the court.

Mrs Riddell-Carre has told Mr Gunn that he has her support.
