Peeblesshire grass fire battled by crews

Firefighters are battling a grass fire in the Borders, the second such incident in the space of 24 hours.

A "large area" of gorse is alight between Nether Kidston and Upper Kidston, just outside Peebles.

Crews have been at the scene since about 1200 BST.

On Monday, firefighters from Strathclyde were called to help their Borders counterparts extinguish a blaze near Broughton, where about 10 acres of grass and bracken were burning.
