Zoe Morrison and Tracey Gillie are two hairdressers trying to pull their business back on it's feet after Jedburgh's flood. Zoe told our reporter:

"It was terrifying watching water pour through the front door and being powerless to stop it. We are hoping to reopen tomorrow but our basement is full of silt and mud. Everything down there is ruined. It is devastating"

Lynne Yourston, owner of L&L Cutz said: "I couldn't believe it when I came down this morning. I could see the water pushing against the door and I knew the damage would be awful.

"Everyone has been fantastic, coming over to see if they can help us out in some way.

"The electrics are out, the floor is ruined but thankfully the stock is ok. I am hoping we can re open as soon as possible."
