A BORDERS tattoo studio is offering a free hour of tattooing to police officers following the their efforts to find a missing girl.

On Sunday night an 11-year-old was reported missing.

She was found more than 24 hours later after Scottish Borders Police, their partner organisations and members of the public took part in a mass search for the youngster.

Frankie Cormack, who runs The Rookery Tattoo Studio in Galashiels is now offering a 'reward' for Borders police officers as a thank you.

Sharing to social media, Cormack said: "AMAZING JOB: Scottish Borders police!

"Not only securing the safety of the young girl, but also keeping all of our kids that little bit safer."

The "reward to the men and women in blue" will include a free hour of tattooing in the studio, worth £100, if booked before the end of February.
