Fresh drugs swoop in Borders

Another seven people have been arrested in the biggest anti-drugs campaign in the Borders for more than 5 years.

It brings the total number of arrests to 38, with quantities of heroin and other drugs being seized from properties.

Police have raided homes in Earlston, Hawick and Galashiels in the last week.

The campaign, named Operation Goal, is aimed at targeting street level drug dealers.

The ridings are a festival of civic pride dating back hundreds of years to the times of the reivers. These days the common riding is a chance to celebrate with friends.
