ONE of the busiest routes into the Borders is currently closed.

Motorists are being told to avoid the A696/A68 junction between Kielder and Carter Bar, (on the England side of the Border) while a damaged HGV is recovered.

The closure came into effect at 3.30pm and is expected to re-open at 5.30pm.
