Police have named a pedestrian who died after being hit by a van near Rosyth.

James Lauder, 55, from the town, was walking on the A823 early on Friday when he was struck by the vehicle.

Mr Lauder was pronounced dead at the scene, on a slip road leading to the M90, while the driver of the white MAN box van was uninjured.

Police appeal for witnesses and dashcam footage

Sergeant Colin Morrison, from Police Scotland’s road policing unit, said: “Our thoughts continue to be with Mr Lauder’s family and friends at this extremely difficult time.

“I’d ask anyone who witnessed the crash, or who may have dashcam footage of either the van or Mr Lauder before the collision happened, to provide any relevant information to officers at the earliest opportunity.”

Those who can assist the police should call 101, quoting incident 0154 of November 5 2021.
