A man has admitted a charge of causing death by careless driving following a crash in the Borders last year.

Keith Atkinson, 68, from Edinburgh, pleaded guilty to the offence which happened on the A72 near Innerleithen on 1 March 2020.

Annie Notman, 82, from Biggar, died as a result of her injuries a day after the four-vehicle crash.

Sentence was deferred at Selkirk Sheriff Court until 18 May for background reports.

Atkinson was made the subject of an interim disqualification from driving until that date.
