An area of land at NHS Borders Newstead site has been fenced off and staff moved from one of the buildings as a precaution following erosion of the river bank next to the site.

David McLuckie, Director of Estates & Facilities said: “A further survey on the condition of the banking will be carried out we will then be able to review the situation.”
