NEW safety barriers are being erected on the A7 near Langholm after a 41 tonne crane crashed there yesterday.
RAIN battered the region on Wednesday and led to stretches of flooding on roads across the area.
A DRIVER who died following a crash near Langholm last night has been named as 18-year-old Harry Blowing from Etterby Scaur in Carlisle.
THERE will be further delays on the A7 from this weekend to allow work on the 17th century Skippers Bridge at Langholm.
ESSENTIAL maintenance work will be conducted on a trunk road north of Langholm next week.
THE funeral has today taken place of the young boy who died in a collision in Longtown earlier this month.
