Borders drugs operation sees second round of arrests

A second round of arrests has been made as part of a major drugs operation in towns across the Scottish Borders.

Homes in Galashiels, Selkirk, Kelso, Hawick and Melrose were targeted in the latest phase of Operation Goal.

A further 12 arrests were made taking the total to 23 from the joint-agency action which started on Wednesday.
