Thousands of homes have remained without power overnight, mainly across rural Berwickshire.

Anyone with welfare concerns or who has been unable to find alternative accommodation should call 01896 752111 so that appropriate assistance can be provided by the council or partners.

Resilient Community groups have continued to support the council’s response, including through providing rolling checks on vulnerable residents in communities affected by power outages.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
