A Berwickshire man appeared in private at Selkirk Sheriff Court on Tuesday facing two rape allegations.

One of the charges against John Michael Hutchison dates back to before the introduction of the Sexual Offences (Scotland) Act 2009.

The 41-year-old from Eyemouth made no plea or declaration and the case was continued for further examination.

He was released on bail by Sheriff Peter Paterson and the next court appearance is on a date yet to be confirmed.
