The controversial closure plan has attracted widespread local criticism Credit: ITV Border

A Scottish Borders lifeboat station will close in September.

The RNLI today announced that the station in St Abbs, which has been in existence for more than a hundred years, will shut on the eighth of September despite a local campaign to keep it open. The RNLI says its station at Eyemouth, two miles away, can cover the area effectively with the addition of a new inshore lifeboat.


New charges for Peebles car parks

New charges at three car parks in Peebles will come into force on Saturday 1 August.

  • At Edinburgh Road Car Park - drivers will only pay 20p for the first two hours
  • Greenside and Swimming Pool car parks, the first four hours of a stay between Monday and Saturday will also now have a 20p charge

The introduction of a nominal 20p charge at these car parks has been made to avoid confusion and will ensure motorists understand that a ticket has to be displayed during charging periods.”
