VIDEO: Watch Border Life online

Fiona Armstrong tells the story of WW1 "agony aunt" Mary Pennyman. Wives and mothers of soldiers from the King's Own Scottish Borderers would write to her for help in overcoming their grief, as well as advice on practical problems. Researchers are trying to find ancestors of the women who wrote these moving letters, now housed in an archive on Teesside.


Weather: Risk of snow

Hail, sleet and snow showers are expected to become frequent overnight and at first on Tuesday morning.

Heavier snowfall is likely to affect higher level routes where 2-5 cm of snow may accumulate in places, whilst 1 to 2 cm is possible to lower levels.

Some transport routes may be affected, with journeys requiring longer travel times.

Weather: Monday

Cloud and patchy rain will quickly clear south during the morning introducing brighter but colder conditions.

During the afternoon there will be sunny spells and maybe a few wintry showers, especially over the hills.

Maximum temperature 11 °C.
