Inquiry held into death of Lauder man found dead near Oxton

A sheriff will issue a written judgement on the death of a Lauder man who suffered a gunshot wound.

Gavin Donaldson, 37, was found dead on exposed moorland near Oxton in May last year.

Members of Borders Search and Rescue Unit helped police officers recover the body from steep ground.

After hearing evidence at a fatal accident inquiry at Jedburgh Sheriff Court, Sheriff Kevin Drummond said he would issue his findings later.
