Teenager in court on rape charges

A 16-year-old boy from the Borders has appeared in private at Selkirk Sheriff Court charged with raping two 14-year-old girls.

The teenager - who cannot be named due to his age - is alleged to have carried out the offences in Selkirk and Galashiels in December and February.

He made no plea and the case was continued for further examination.

He was released on bail by Sheriff Kevin Drummond with special conditions.
