Judy Murray, mum of former Wimbeldon Champion Andy, brought her Tennis on the Road programme back to Dumfries and Galloway on Saturday.

The tennis coach put on a number of sessions for local residents and helped in the grand opening of the Stewartry Community Sports Club.

Her Tennis on the Road programme shows parents, teachers, volunteers and sports development teams how to deliver fun tennis, coordination and competition sessions to children and adults.

Many of the games and skill-builders are based on those that Judy played with her tennis star sons Andy and Jamie when they were young.

“Tennis on the Road is about helping to inspire, support and grow our workforce by sharing ideas for coaching, competition and skill building with parents, teachers, students, volunteers and sports coaches.

We’ve now spent four days across April and May building a workforce in Dumfries and Galloway, visiting various schools and tennis clubs in the area."

The supsect, who fled the scene when the woman woke, is described as being between 5'7" to 5'9" tall and is of stocky build.

He was wearing a dark zipper/windstopper type jacket with a flash of red on the chest, with a hood which came down over his face, and black trousers and footwear.
