TWO politicians are determined to keep in touch with their constituents during the coronavirus pandemic.

Dumfriesshire, Clydesdale and Tweeddale MP David Mundell and Dumfriesshire Constituency MSP Oliver Mundell want to reach out to residents during the crisis.

Whilst their offices in Moffat and Lockerbie will observe official advice by being closed to the public, it will be almost business as usual for the father and son and their team, who will be largely home-based.

David said: “It is important for us to keep a dialogue with constituents and the telephone surgeries seem an effective starting point. We are here to help.”
