Four people have ended up in hospital following a two-car crash on the A68 north of Jedburgh.

A 69-year-old woman and an elderly man had to be freed by firefighters from their Toyota Avensis after the accident shortly before 08:00.

They were both taken to the Royal Infirmary in Edinburgh.

Two people in the other vehicle, a Volkswagen Passat, were taken to Borders General Hospital but were not seriously hurt.

The A68 was completely closed for investigations between A698 (Bonjedward) and A698 (Cleikhimin).
