THESE striking pictures show severe damage to a major road into the Borders.

The A68 between Pathhead and Fala is closed after part of the route was badly damaged by flooding.

Amey, which manages Scotland's trunk roads, said: "A diversion has been established and an investigation is taking place into the full extent of the damage.

"Maintenance crews [are] already working to repair, but clearly it will take some time."

One Twitter user posted: "OMG that's a scary thing to happen."
