There was some disruption to traffic in the area as vehicles heading into town have to cross onto the other carriageway to overtake the vehicles 

A witness who did not want to be indentified said: "There was no other traffic on the road and I heard a loud bang. I thought the car had hit a pothole but it looks like it hit the fence which is damaged."

No injuries were sustained by the driver.

A Police Scotland spokesperson said: “Around 9.50am on Friday, 3 February, 2023, police received a report of a one-vehicle crash on Melrose Road, Galashiels.

"Vehicle recovery is being arranged.”
