A Jedburgh man's brick collection - which documents the history of brick-making in Scotland - has landed him a nomination for a national award.

Mark Cranston started his collection nearly five years ago.

He's one of three nominees in the Investigating and Recording category of the Scottish Heritage Angel Awards.
