Dr Andrew Murray has just returned from running 550 kilometres across one of the most inhospitable places on the planet.

He gave a talk about his time trekking across the Namib desert at the Peebles outdoor film festival

Organisers hoped the festival, which they have said was a success, would encourage more people to make the most of the great outdoors.

Ahead of May's General Election we're going to be talking to the Border region's eight current MPs about their last five years in office. We want to scrutinise their record as a constituency MP and their political party on a national level.

To help us pose the most important questions we want you to tell us what you'd like us to ask them.

This is a chance to put your MP on the spot and to grill them about local and national concerns and issues.

So, send us your questions, let us know which MP they're for and we'll try to ask a selection of them on your behalf.
