Teenager's death 'unexplained'

Police are treating the death of a teenage boy as "unexplained".

The 16-year-old, thought to be from Kelso, was taken to Borders General Hospital in Melrose at about 07:00 after falling ill at an address in Newtown St Boswells.

It is understood a number of other youths were later taken to hospital in connection with the same incident.

Police said they would not know the cause of death until a post-mortem examination was carried out.
