Mollie McIntosh MBE, a former Tweeddale citizen of the year and doyenne of the Walkerburn community, is recovering in the Borders General Hospital after sustaining a broken hip and wrist in a fall.

Miss McIntosh, 95, a lifetime supporter of the Conservative Party, tripped as she was leaving a social event, hosted by Tweeddale MP David Mundell, in West Linton.

A friend said of Miss McIntosh: “She is in some pain and discomfort but is showing typical fighting spirit.”

Miss McIntosh has volunteered for numerous organisations throughout her life.
