Vote supports plans for mountain bike lift

People in the Borders have backed plans to build a giant mountain bike lift near Innerleithen.

The lift will help bikers reach the top of a popular mountain used for the sport.

More than 90 percent of those who voted were in favour of building the lift, which means it can now go on to the next stage.

It's hoped the project, which includes a visitor centre and toboggan run, will bring a hundred jobs to the area.
