Campaigners in Eyemouth are raising money for life saving equipment at the town's harbour where a teenager was seriously injured after being swept out to sea.
The Berwickshire residents are fed up waiting for Scottish Borders Council to complete a safety review two months after the accident when waves washed 14-year-old Katie MacLean off steps at the harbour wall as she tried to pull a friend to safety.
Rescuers were stunned to find no lifebelts or safety equipment in the immediate vicinity during the June 4 incident.
The council have launched an assessment of safety provision in the area but locals are frustrated at the length of time it is taking.
One lifebelt has now been put in place but local residents and businesses want to provide more.
