Earlston concrete plant proposals dropped

Campaigners have welcomed a company's decision to drop its plans for a concrete plant in a Borders village.

Bardons had been given planning permission to build the facility in Earlston despite local opposition.

However, the company has now decided not to proceed with the project near Station Road in the village.

Opponents said they would be ready to campaign against any other firm which tried to implement the planning consent, which remains in place.
