Full Report: Disability services up for discussion in the Borders

Protestors in the Scottish Borders have vowed to carry on fighting against the closure of a work project for disabled adults.

The council this evening have confirmed they are shutting the Reivers Industry sites in Tweedbank, Selkirk and Langlie Mill.

The workshops are places where people with disabilities get the chance to work and meet up.

1,300 signatures were handed to the council meeting today to ask for them to stay open.

The council insists it can provide better services elsewhere.
