Man arrested after incident at Borders health centre

A 47-year-old man has been arrested and charged following an incident at Galashiels Health Centre.

He is due to appear at Jedburgh Sheriff Court on Friday morning.

Lothian and Borders Police cordoned off the centre on Currie Road for several hours this afternoon after reports that a man had doused himself with petrol and threatened to set himself alight.

Staff and patients were evacuated to a nearby supermarket until the incident was resolved.
