A new museum in honour of Scots motorsport hero Jim Clark has been officially opened by three-time Formula One world champion Sir Jackie Stewart.

He was joined by three-time Le Mans winner Allan McNish for the occasion in Duns on Thursday.

A display of Lotus cars was also part of the ceremony at the £1.6m facility.
