Police are keen to trace the driver of the white tanker with a ladder, which did not stop.

Constable Gavin Liddle said: “There is a chance the tanker driver is unaware they have been involved in a collision and so we hope if they become aware of this appeal they will get in touch and assist with our inquiries.

“We are also keen to hear from other motorists who were on the A68 at the time and witnessed what happened, or who have information relevant to this investigation.”

Anyone with information can contact Kelso Police Station via 101 and quote incident number 1553 of June 17.
