Better Together campaigners in east Berwickshire plan to re-erect signs which they say have been damaged this week. William Mykura, who farms at Coldingham Moor, says a sign on his land had the centre ripped out. He says a second sign at Lawfield, just outside Coldingham, was removed entirely and that both incidents have been reported to police. Alison Fullarton of Better Together East Berwickshire said a third sign positioned on top of three hay bales opposite Ayton church was toppled.

Police have received a report of stolen signs from Coldingham on August 16, and enquiries are ongoing.
