Two car dealerships have shut down after the company which runs them plunged into administration.

All 23 workers at the Kia and Suzuki showrooms in Selkirk, Scottish Borders, have been made redundant.

Leven Cars Group Limited appointed administrators on January 7, but they have now confirmed the dealerships couldn’t be saved.
