An 87-year-old man has died after his car left the road and hit a tree in the Borders.

The crash happened on the A7 near Teviothead at 07:50am on Sunday 29 April.

Emergency services attended and the man was pronounced dead at the scene.

The road was closed for around four hours while investigations were carried out.

Police have appealed for witnesses and have asked anyone with information to come forward.

Our thoughts are with the family and friends of this man who has tragically lost his life as a result of the collision.

I would ask anyone who was driving on the A7 between Hawick and Langholm and who saw the collision to come forward.

I would also ask anyone who may have seen the white Honda Civic immediately prior to the collision to get in touch."
