Glasgow 2014: Queen's baton reaches the Borders

Thousands of people have turned out in the Borders to see the Queen's Commonwealth Games Baton on the fifth day of its journey through Scotland.

The relay has been travelling from Duns to Hawick via Melrose, Kelso and Jedburgh.

Volunteer baton bearers have been carrying the baton, bearing a message from The Queen, on a 40-day tour of Scotland.

By the time the baton arrives at the Games' opening ceremony in Glasgow on 23 July it will have travelled through 70 nations and territories.
