POLICE have charged a woman after concerns were raised about practices at a fox hunt last October.

The 42-year-old will be subject of a report to the Procurator Fiscal.

The hunt took place in the Borders on October 24 last year.

PC Andy Loughlin, wildlife crime officer for the Lothians and Scottish Borders said: "We take all reports of wildlife offences very seriously and criminality against our natural environment in Scotland will not be tolerated.

"I would encourage any members of the public with any concerns to contact police on 101, each area has a dedicated Wildlife Crime Officer who will be able to help."
