An exhibition is opening in Hawick outlining proposals to tackle its long-standing problems with flooding.

It is one of the first steps towards introducing a new set of flood defences for the town.

Scottish Borders Council is urging local people to help decide how the scheme should progress.

Hawick has had major problems with flood waters on many occasions over the years with the most devastating incident in recent times in 2005.

The exhibition is at the town's Tower Mill throughout Wednesday and Thursday.
