'No more borders' say Scottish farmers ahead of election

Scottish sheep farmers who have taken a financial hit caused by trade bureaucracy surrounding the border in the Irish Sea post-Brexit say they don't want Scottish independence as this would mean a whole new set of problems. The farmers speak to AFP in the Scottish border region ahead of a Parliamentary election on Thursday. Polls suggest that the pro-independence Scottish National Party, which has promised to fight for an independence referendum, is on track to win a majority.
