Two men and a woman from Manchester have appeared in court accused of running a cannabis farm in the Borders.

It followed a police raid on a property at Whisgills Farm near Newcastleton where drugs and plants with a potential street value of £30,000 were found.

Mattias Eugene Berry, 44, Shelby Sada Gilligan, 21, and Wayne Marc Chadwick, 41, appeared at Selkirk Sheriff Court.

All three made no plea or declaration and the case was continued for further examination.

Mr Chadwick was remanded in custody and is expected to appear in court again on 17 July.

Mr Berry and Ms Gilligan were both released on bail.
