Hundreds of Christmas trees worth thousands of pounds have been stolen from a farm in the Scottish Borders.

A total of 420 pine trees were taken from Shielsknowe Forestry at Brundenlaws Farm near Jedburgh.

The theft was discovered on Monday morning and is thought to have taken place overnight.

The trees, worth £6,300, had been packaged up and were sitting on pallets ready to be delivered to furniture firm IKEA when they were taken.

Lothian and Borders Police have appealed for anyone with information to come forward, especially if a vehicle was spotted acting suspiciously in the area overnight on Sunday.
