Local MSP for Ettrick, Roxburgh and Berwickshire, John Lamont, says voters in the border will have a clear choice between the SNP and the Conservatives.

In a statement released by the Scottish Conservative Party member, Lamont said an election in June is "necessary to secure the strong and stable leadership the UK needs to see us through Brexit and beyond."

The statement also said local party members will be selecting the Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party candidate for Berwickshire, Roxburgh and Selkirk in "the coming days".
