Hundreds of bikers are riding through the Scottish Borders to mark the 10th anniversary of the death of Steve Hislop.

Hislop - a former British Superbike and Isle of Man TT Champion - was killed at the age of 41 when his helicopter crashed near Teviothead in July 2003. The Steve 'Hizzy' Hislop Memorial Run takes place annually to mark his tragic death.

The route will see the motorcyclists depart from Hislop's home village of Denholm this morning, before heading to the England-Scotland border and returning to Denholm at 2:30pm.
