IN PICTURES: Lauder fancy dress parade

The weird and wonderful descended on Lauder on Wednesday evening, with dozens taking part in the traditional fancy dress, part of the town’s common riding celebrations.

From fairy-tale princesses and astronauts to the Burnmill Spice Girls and Mrs Brown’s Boys, unusually-clad townsfolk packed the streets. Photographer Bill McBurnie snapped some of the entrants.
