Dumfries and Galloway MP Russell Brown has welcomed the news that Scottish Power will be investing £10 million into improving the area's electricity network.
"It's going to keep the linesman busy and at the end of the day what is required here is for the customers the power consumers to be happy with the service they've got, up until now, that hasn't been the case and they've had every right to complain, but hopefully we'll get there."
