Health chiefs in the Scottish Borders were last night continuing investigations into two separate E. coli 0157 outbreaks.

In the village of Roberton, seven people are infected in a scare linked to a Burns Supper. In Hawick, two confirmed cases and one unconfirmed have been reported over the weekend in a new outbreak. Borders Health Board said the three people affected bought meat from W&J Hutton in Hawick.
