A woman has died following a four-car crash in the Scottish Borders at the weekend.

Annie Notman, 82, of Biggar, was airlifted to hospital for treatment after the accident on the A72 near Innerleithen on Sunday.

However, a police statement confirmed she died of her injuries the following day.

Two other people - a 78-year-old woman and 53-year-old man - were also seriously hurt in the collision.

A 60-year-old man was taken to hospital as a precaution.

The accident happened at about 12:30 on Sunday and involved a black VW Polo, a blue Ford Fiesta, a red Fiat Panda and a silver Ford Focus.

Ms Notman was taken to Edinburgh Royal Infirmary after the crash but later died.

'Deepest sympathies'

The road was closed for seven hours while officers carried out their investigation.

In a statement issued via Police Scotland, Ms Notman's family said: "Annie was a much-loved and devoted sister, mother, grandmother and great-granny.

"She will be missed by all."

Sgt Paul Ewing said their "deepest sympathies" were with the family as police worked to "establish exactly what happened".

"Members of the public came to help the injured people following the crash and we have managed to speak to them about what they saw," he said.

"However, we are still keen to hear from anyone else who may have been in the area at the time, or may have been driving behind the cars involved."
