Fire vandals target Scottish Borders speed cameras

Firefighters in the Scottish Borders have been called out to deal with a speed camera which is thought to have been set alight.

The vandalism happened just after 0300 GMT on the A68 about three miles south of Lauder.

It is at least the 19th such fire to have struck a safety camera in the region since 2004.

Sites on the A68, A1 and A697 in Berwickshire have all been targeted in the past.
