Work is to start on an expansion of a shopping centre in southern Scotland with the promise of 50 new jobs.

It is the third phase of development at the Gretna Gateway outlet village.

It currently employs about 400 people across dozens of stores and cafes on the site.

General Manager Peter Gardner said Gretna Gateway was a "real success story" and its growth had consistently outperformed the rest of the UK.

The latest expansion will get under way in October with its "anchor tenant", Next Outlet, expected to open next summer.
