An MP from the Borders has written to the Justice Secretary Kenny MacKaskill to express his concerns about possible court closures in the Borders.
This is the second time that Michael Moore has done so, the first being after plans were proposed to close courts in Duns, Selkirk and Peebles.
The Borders MP believes that the plans could reduce the speed of, and accessibility to justice for victims of crime in the region.
The Scottish Court Service has since decided to keep the Selkirk Court open but plans remain to close those in Peebles and Duns.
A consultation was launched on these proposals and closed at the end of last month - the findings of which are due to be published in the spring.
Should the SCS decide to recommend court closures following the consultation, the final decision would be made by the Scottish Parliament.
