A village phone box in the south of Scotland has been transformed into a miniature library.

BT revealed it's scrapping hundreds of boxes across the country, after usage has dropped by 90% over the past decade.

Villagers in Crossmichael signed up for the 'Adopt a Kiosk' scheme and paid £1 to take over ownership of their phone box.

The mini library, named the Wee Book Hoose, was officially opened on Friday by local author, Mary Smith.
