The public has been asked to decide the name of a £32m schools campus in the Borders.

The facility at Hartrigge Park in Jedburgh will replace Jedburgh Grammar, Howdenburn and Parkside primary schools by 2020.

Voters will be able to choose from one of five option in an online survey until 30 June.

Scottish Borders Council said the new campus remained on course to open by spring next year.
