John Buchan Ltd, owner of Scottish Borders knitwear manufacturer Lochcarron of Scotland has announced the sale of the Lochcarron business to South Korean retail company E-Land.

According to a BBC News South Scotland report this morning, John Buchan Ltd said the deal would secure the company's presence as a manufacturing business in the Borders.
