A driver has appeared in court after a bus ended up hanging over a river bank in the Scottish Borders.

Colin Hill, 61, of Hawick, was accused of dangerous driving in Jedburgh in October last year.

He was charged with failing to control the bus by driving at excessive speed for the conditions and road layout.

He was also accused of striking a car, railings, a wall and a road sign. The case was continued without plea at Jedburgh Sheriff Court.
