A member of the public reported the graffiti attacks at locations around Canongate on Friday afternoon, including the town’s bus depot and courthouse.

Scottish Borders Council has also been informed of the offending words and images by the police, with a view to having them removed. Among the language used is a derogatory reference to the police and the words ‘hell town’.

A Police Scotland spokesperson said: “On Friday, 16 July, 2021, reports were made to police regarding graffiti on several walls in the Jedburgh area. Enquiries are continuing. The local council has been made aware regarding removal."
