The Queen's Baton Relay has arrived in Scotland as it begins a 40-day tour of the host country ahead of the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.

The baton, the Commonwealth's version of the Olympic torch, has travelled about 100,000 miles and visited 69 nations and territories since October.

Triple gold medallist Daley Thompson handed the baton to Scottish athlete Eilidh Child on the border at Coldstream bridge at 07:45.

The baton is now heading to Edinburgh.
