46 workers at a J Barbour & Sons factory in the Scottish Borders are to lose their jobs when the plant shuts at the end of this month.
 
The Tyneside-based company, which is famous for its waxed jackets, issued a statement on Friday (11 January) confirming plans to close the plant by 31 January.

The Galashiels factory, which produces classic knitwear and weaving, has been operating for 12 years.
