A flood warning has been issued as parts of Scotland experience heavy downpours.
On Friday morning the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (Sepa) issued a flood warning for parts of the Scottish Borders.
The agency warned that the Greenlaw and Allanton areas of the region could experience flooding and advised residents to collect sandbags from the nearest council store in Duns Fire Station.
Sepa said that river levels on the Blackadder Water are rising as a result of "heavy and persistent rain falling through Thursday night and early Friday morning".
Low lying farmland is the most at risk, the agency warned.
According to the agency, the whole of the Scottish Borders is on flood alert because of the recent deluge.
Residents in the region should “be prepared” to take action over flooding, Sepa said.
