Talks have started on plans to relocate Golden Eagle chicks to the South of Scotland.

The South of Scotland Golden Eagle Project is looking at the possibility of transferring birds from the Highlands as early as next year.

There are more than 500 pairs of Golden Eagles in Scotland, a 15% rise since 2003.

But it's thought there are no more than four of these pairs in the South of Scotland.

New details have been released about a Land Rover Defender used in a bank raid in Langholm on the 11th of November.

Police Scotland say the green-coloured vehicle, which was in pristine condition, was stolen from a house in English Street in Longtown on the night of Thursday 27th October/Friday 28th October, two weeks before the break in at the Royal Bank of Scotland.

The police say a key lead in the enquiry surrounds the movement of the vehicle.

Detective Inspector Scott Young said: “The question we are keen to have answered is ‘where has that vehicle been for two weeks’? We want to hear from anyone who may have seen this vehicle since the 28th October. Has it been seen driving about the area? Was it parked in a street, or a car park, or elsewhere over this period?

"The Land Rover still had its original number plates on when it was found burning a short time after the raid on the B6318 south of Skippers Bridge. As I said, the Land Rover was in a very clean condition for its age and it just might have caught the eye of Land Rover enthusiasts. Anyone with any information should call us on 101, or if they want to remain anonymous then through Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
