A NUMBER of roads have been closed in the Borders as Storm Isha batters the region. 

The A68 at Jedwater Bridge was shut in both directions due to flooding after the river burst its banks.

The major road was closed at the bridge last night.

But it has now reopened under 'stop and go' management, according to Traffic Scotland.

Meanwhile, the council said that flooding and fallen trees had impacted smaller roads in the region.

The B712 at Dawyck is closed due to flooding, as is the D1/3 Craik Road, according to the council.

Flooding has also shut the B6400 at Nisbet, as well as Wilton Park Road, Hawick, and the B709 Ettrick Valley. 

The council said that Main Street, Gordon, was closed due to a "burst water main".

It added that there was a risk of debris on every route across the region.

All Borders Railway services have been cancelled today (Monday).
