The rebirth of the Borders Railway has been celebrated by two former project employees, Natasha and Daniel Black, who have named their daughter after the long awaited new line.

Odell-May Waverley Black, whose middle name was inspired by the landmark project, was born just five months before the railway is due to open.

Network Rail, which has led the construction of the project, has gifted the family golden tickets for the inaugural journey along the new route on September 5.
