The Scottish Conservative leader was out campaigning in the Borders today.

Ruth Davidson was at a garden centre in Newtown St Boswells to talk about the importance of Southern Scotland and the party's intention to support local businesses.

The South of Scotland is absolutely important for the Scottish Conservatives, we're working incredibly hard here, we already have the secretary of state for Scotland who has his seat in Dumfries and Galloway.

"We're working hard elsewhere and talking about the Borderland Growth Deal today, not just in the south of Scotland but we want to work with the north of England and make sure we have the economic development that this part of the country really needs."
