Three men have been arrested and charged for a counterfeit currency offence in the Scottish Borders.

Officers in Duns and Coldstream were alerted after a number of fake £20 notes were used at business premises in these areas on Monday.

Police then stopped a vehicle in Norham, Northumberland later that day and a quantity of forged notes were found within.

The men aged 27, 30 and 51 will all now be reported to the Procurator Fiscal.
