A weekly newspaper’s office has shut after its owner deemed there was “no longer a requirement” to have a headquarters in the town where it was based.
The Telegraph is run from Galashiels, around 18 miles away from Peebles.
Newsquest says the Peebles office, pictured, which was above a branch of the Bank of Scotland, was only being used once a week on average.
However the company has confirmed reporters will continue to work remotely in Peeblesshire following the move.
A Newsquest spokesman said: “Following a review, it was apparent that there was no longer a requirement to have a base in Peeblesshire.
“It was only being utilised on average one day a week as all other staff were based out of the Galashiels office.
“However, we will continue to have a presence in Peeblesshire with reporters working remotely in the town to ensure our readers are provided with the best possible news and information service.”
