Selkirk recycling centre reopens today, after being closed for five months to allow for essential flood works.

The centre was closed in February to make way for a diversion route for the Selkirk Flood Protection Scheme to be extended through the site.

The work means homes and businesses can still be accessed while the installation of a new culvert requires a section of Dunsdale Hough road to be shut.
