A Peebles resident says one of the proposed locations for the second road bridge will disrupt his home, and mean his neighbours house will have to be demolished.

One of the favoured options between the A72 and Cavalry Park cuts past Andrew Starks front door.

He said: "To get onto the main road, the first thing is, it is going to be above our house, it will probably destroy a neighbouring house there to get the road in, so all in all it seems someone has just drawn a line, and just wants to get onto the main road."
