It's been a historic day for the region with the top people from five border councils getting together for the first ever Borderlands Summit.
Councillors from Carlisle City, Cumbria and Northumberland County councils in England and Dumfries and Galloway and the Borders councils in the south of Scotland met today in Peebles.
The meeting was prompted by the impending vote on Scottish independence, but the councils say it's important that they increase cooperation whatever the outcome of September's referendum.
Tim Backshall has been in Peebles today.
