Scottish Borders Council has given the go-ahead for a £12m replacement for Langlee Primary in Galashiels.

The three-storey school will have 14 classrooms, a nursery, an adjoining special needs centre and a sports hall.

There will also be a multi-games area created in the grounds. The current 1960s building will be demolished to make way for the new school.

Work is scheduled to start early next year - and should be completed by summer 2017.
