A bus driver has been found not guilty of causing the death of a respected Legion campaigner in Angus.
Michael McKeown, known as Mick, died following a collision involving a double-decker Stagecoach Strathtay bus in Forfar on January 8 2016.
The 78-year-old, a popular figure in the community and former chairman of the town’s Royal British Legion Scotland branch, was walking in Don Street at its junction with North Street at around 11.10am.
He was taken to Ninewells Hospital in Dundee but died as a result of his injuries.
Scott Lamb, 49, from Forfar appeared before a jury at Dundee Sheriff Court facing a charge he caused Mr McKeown’s death by careless or inconsiderate driving.
