A 24-year-old man has been arrested and charged after a sex video featuring the lead singer of folk band Scocha was posted online.

Although the footage featuring 50-year-old Iain Scott was later removed, it had been widely viewed and shared on social media.

Sergeant Lynsey Thomson from Hawick Police Station said: "It is important that people are mindful of what is posted and shared online and the impact it can have on both themselves and others.

"Any reports of offences committed online will be thoroughly investigated and anyone found to be involved will be robustly dealt with."

The 24-year-old will appear in court at a later date.
