Battle of Bannock buns...

It's enough to send Robert the Bruce off his loaf ...

Bakers in Selkirk are crossing swords in a battle of bannock buns.

First, baker Colin Kay put up a sign saying that his bannocks were the only ones still made locally.

Then chain-store boss John Fallon counter-attacked saying his bakery was the first to produce the snack, invented in Selkirk 100 years ago.

Mr Kay, who owns Cameron's bakery said: "We're the only home bakers left in Selkirk."

But John Fallon, of the Borders Bakery, said: "We're their original home."

The rivalry hasn't surprised locals.

One said: "You can't blame them for cashing in. The buns are very popular."
