An historic textile firm in the Borders is expected to close with the loss of 20 jobs.

Workers at Hawick Knitwear were told the news this lunchtime.

A 30-day consultation period is now underway.

Hawick knitwear, which is now owned by a Chinese company, started in 1847.

A hundred jobs were lost when the company went into administration in January 2016.
