Hawick missing girl found safe and well

A teenage student from Hawick reported missing at the weekend has been found safe and well in the Newcastle area.

Leah Dickson, 16, of the town's Queens Drive had last been seen boarding a bus on Friday.

When she failed to respond to calls and text messages it prompted a radio appeal for information to help to trace her.

A Police Scotland spokesman confirmed she had been found in the north east of England.
