The Moorland May music festival is set to take place in Langholm over the bank holiday weekend, 27-28 May.

Over 13 bands will be performing across all hotels in the town over the two days.

Organisers are hoping to take advantage of tourists lured to the area for the Spring Fling.

Well tourism's kind of integral to the town you know, a lot of the local businesses are closing down. It's a bit of a tough time at the minute so the more folk we can attract through the town to come and maybe stay the night or have a meal, things like that then the better it is for everyone.

People kind of drive straight through Langholm there's not a great many places they can stop so if we can make the most of it while the folk are here you know and try and do as much as we can for the local businesses then we're more than happy to do that.

Defender Michael Raynes has turned down a new contract with Carlisle United to sign for Crewe Alexandra.

The 29-year-old joined the Blues in the summer of 2015.

He made a total of 97 appearances and scored six goals during his two-year stint at Brunton Park and was the club’s vice captain.

"Michael has been fantastic for us, both with how he's been as an individual and with his presence for us in the dressing room and out on the pitch.

"He's a great character who demands high standards of himself and of others and he was an excellent captain and vice captain through his time here.

"I'm sure he will go on to have an equally positive impact when he takes on his next challenge."
