Contamination at Gorebridge burn

Network Rail were quick to reassure locals after grouting materials used to fill abandoned mines was discovered in a Gorebridge burn.

They say that the grout used on the Borders Railway line, which is one part cement to 12 parts ash, is not toxic and invited SEPA in to investigate the discovery at Suzie Dean, close to Powdermill Brae.

All nearby grouting work was immediately stopped.
