The 34-year-old was stopped on Seafield Place in Eyemouth at around 3.30pm on Wednesday 7th December.

She has been arrested and a report is being sent to the Procurator Fiscal.

"Police Scotland's annual festive drink-driving campaign is now underway and we will be robustly monitoring routes throughout the Borders to identify anyone who is driving while under the influence.

"Rest assured, if you are caught to be driving while over the limit, you will be arrested, you will lose your licence and this could have a significant impact on both your professional and personal life.

"Quite simply, do not risk it."

Officers in Dumfries are investigating what they say appears to be a suspicious fire in Dalswinton Avenue.

The fire was discovered at the rear of an unoccupied house just after midnight on Wednesday 7th December.

Police believe a sofa and some rubbish were set alight.

The fire was extinguished, but caused some damage to a window.

"This appears to have been a complete act of recklessness and the consequences could have been tragic if the fire had taken hold. We are not sure at this stage if those responsible knew that the house was unoccupied at the time the fire was set.

"We want to hear from anyone who may have any information which might help us catch those responsible for this stupid and dangerous act."
