Man charged over Galashiels' Mercat Cross damage

A man has been charged with careless driving after a monument in the Scottish Borders was damaged.

The 147-year-old Mercat Cross in Galashiels had several decorative plinth stones knocked out of position following the collision last week.

Police Scotland confirmed a 55-year-old man had been charged with careless driving and a report would be submitted to the procurator fiscal.

The monument will need to be taken down for repair and then put back together.
