Lockerbie ambulance station site opened

A new £600,000 ambulance station is being officially opened in the south of Scotland.

The building at Broomhouses Industrial Estate in Lockerbie has replaced the former base on Mains Street.

The chairman of the Scottish Ambulance Service, David Garbutt, will perform the ribbon-cutting at the new site.

Chief Executive Pauline Howie said the new base was better located and offered crews much-improved facilities.
