A resident from Earlston, Scottish Borders, has moved electric security fencing following concerns from the local council.

According to the Southern Reporter, the structures were originally put in place by Kate Brownlie in a bid to protect her horses from roaming dogs, but the local authority raised safety issues for the wellbeing of pets and young children that walk past the area.

Ms Brownlie told the source that the fences had been put up "out of necessity" but she has now been commended by the council for the relocation of the live wires.

Speaking to the Southern Reporter, she said: "I have an important business to run and, apart from dogs running wild in the field, spooking the horses and leaving their excrement, thoughtless members of the public were indiscriminately feeding the horses over the fence."

With horses costing in to the thousands to take care of, Ms Brownlie was concerned that the dogs could upset and distress the animals in her care.
