Galashiels gas works delay 'regret'

Scottish Borders Council has expressed "regret" over a delay to works towards a new relief route in Galashiels.

It had been hoped gas main diversions in the Ladhope Vale area of the town could be completed this week but will now run on until 16 December.

They will then be suspended at that point for Christmas.

SBC programme manager Ewan Doyle said they would be working hard towards meeting the new target date and thanked the public for its patience.
