One of the organisers of the Lauder Common Riding says they have been targeted after a fancy dress float caused offence at this year's event. A float with people dressed as Jimmy Savile and schoolgirls was part of a parade in the Borders town last weekend.
The stunt made national news headlines and was criticised by politicians and charities. The organiser says animal droppings were left at their home and have reported the matter to Police.
